The admission letter you have received is the proof that you have been admitted as a PhD student at SSE. If you need a visa to come to Sweden, the Swedish Migration Office might ask you to provide the protocol of the decision to admit you to the program. Contact Elena Braccia in case you receive such a request.
Depending on your country of origin, you might need a residence permit to come to SSE. Please, refer to the Swedish Migration Agency’s website to read what applies to your specific case.
Accompanying partner and children
Spouses/registered partners and children moving following a PhD student to Sweden are entitled to receive a residence permit based on the PhD student’s visa. In order to facilitate this process, it is important that the whole family applies for the visa at the same time.
At SSE we have a small housing office that offers rooms and apartments to some of our international students. See the menu on the right ("Housing") to view the available options, but please contact your department before you contact our housing office, as some arrangements might already have been made for you.
It is very important that you purchase a travel insurance that covers your trip and ensure that you have valid medical insurance covering you and any accompanying family members for the initial weeks in Stockholm before you have obtained your Swedish Personal Identity Number. EU/EEA students should make sure they bring a European Health Insurance Card from their home countries or, alternatively, bring the terms and conditions for a fully comprehensive private health insurance policy.
