Does anyone have some tips for the best way to go about living and working in Sweden?
I have a keen interest in moving to Sweden in the next few years.
I am an American studying law in the UK. Obviously I don’t have the free movement benefits like EU citizens, however I am sure there must be some ways to achieve this!
Currently I am not really considering marriage as a possible option. I have thought about doing a Masters in Sweden, however this would only grant me one year of living there, with no possibilities to extend.
I am not fluent in Swedish, and I know that surely this must be a requirement for working in the legal field. Simply because I have a law degree wouldn’t get me hired, I am sure they wouldn’t appreciate me applying for jobs with caveman-esque Swedish language capabilities! I am not certain however if the language would be a requirement or not – as I know plenty of foreign people do work in Sweden without being fluent in their language.
Anyway, this is my first attempt at seeking some advice on where I can begin to plan this. My main questions are, what would I need to do to accomplish moving to Sweden? Are there any other jobs I may consider, which would allow me to move there, taking into account my degree in law?
I would love to hear your experiences if anyone has done a similar move, and where you began! Thanks so much!
