Sweden: Study in Sweden Google Map - StudyInSweden is the Swedish government's official portal for students thinking of studying in Sweden. There are around 300 master's programmes taught in English at Swedish universities, and they are free for anybody to apply to and attend -- including foreign students. StudyInSweden exists to tell the world that you can study for free in English in Sweden (if you're good enough), and now it's just become easier to find out just where these universities are through this Google Maps mashup which helps you locate where these universities are located.
