At present when you choose India,the site says no scholarship is listed.I guess its the case with other countries too.Guess it will take some time to update on the exact scenario

Hi Everybody,

I am a MS student in the Networks and Distributed systems program in Chalmers.

Regarding the admit,if you get admit from KTH,Chalmers,Lund or Uppsala with the scholarships you can definitely go ahead with the admits since I can assure you that Quality of education and research in these Univs is on par with the Top 30-50 universities in US.

Regarding the Job scenario,it is defintely better compared to the rest of Europe ..
As far as Cost of living is concerned it will not take more than 3 lakhs per year..

If you are ready to do odd jobs then you can get part-time jobs but the challenge will be to balance ur studies with your part-time jobs..Since the courses are very rigorous here..


However if u dont get shcolarships,it would be better to think about it since u need to consider the factors like ROI,Languages problems and other issues..

The quality of education is research is very good but i think the tuition fees is a bit on the higher side and it nearly equals the cost of studying in US/UK...
So if you get admit Schols then you can consider it definitely...

hope it helps...

By the way Chalmers & KTH are very famous for CS,Communication,Mechanical and Automative Engg courses..

sweden (especially chalmers) gets more points than top 50 US universities in terms of quality of education. especially in gothenberg, most people speak english so language is rarely a problem.. if you put your heart and soul into it, learning swedish is not that hard.. it just takes a bit of time and the rewards are many..

you can find a paid masters thesis with relative ease at chalmers.. living expenses are not so high.. but be prepared to work your ass off.. courses here are far more rigorous than any i have seen in my life... finally, i you learn swedish, the possibility of getting a job is far higher than in US. there are lesser restrictions on off campus employment and after 4 years of work permit you are eligible for immigration..


all in all it is a good deal, provided you get in..

Hey guys light fades away, billa and karthik ravi

Can you please answer the below questions?
I have applied for COMPUTER SYSTEMS AND NETWORKS at chalmers as my first priority.
1. what is approx total overall cost of studying at chalmers (assuming that I get 30% aid, I might be hoping too much Very Happy )
2. what is the current post-ms job scene at chalmers? (If possible, name the companies where ppl get into after doing m.s in CS)
3. what is the on-campus job scene? Is there anythng like TA/RA as it is in US?
I have tried to search for the info on edulix, but most of the data is old.
Thank you.Smile

All my replies and comments are just my opinion and on the basis of what I have experienced till now.

1. According to the Chalmers website, the total tuition fees for the degree is SEK 280,000. So if you get 30% scholarship, you would need to pay around SEK 195 000, which is around US$ 28,000. I think there are many possibilities to get higher scholarhip in second year depening on your performance. Also you can easily get paid thesis which pays SEK 30,000 - 50,000.

2. In my opinion, things have got a lot better there now. Now its much easier to get (odd) part time jobs, professional jobs, thesis and internships etc., because there are not many international (Non-Eu) students anymore.
A lot of nordic companies participate in annual job festival at Chalmers. I think Ericsson is the major company where students from Chalmers CSE department go for thesis and jobs cos they are located in Göteborg also, and have co-operation with Chalmers. Volvo also offers lots of internships and jobs. Apart from these major companies, there many small and medium size local IT companies located in Sweden and neighbour countries Norway, Denmark, Finland etc. where students go.

3. Apart from paid thesis, there are not many on-campus jobs available for the masters students. TA/RA related jobs are given to the PhD students. However couple of my friends managed to get the lab assistant work at Chalmers. But again, the major cities like Göteborg or Stockholm have many small IT companies where its possible to get part time jobs as a web developer etc.

Hope it helps.

I guess sometimes the past just catches up with you, whether you want it to or not.

sanky10987 Living costs are around SEK 5000-7000 /month depending on your lifestyle.
The salaries start from SEK25,000+ /month.
