If you come from another country and study in Sweden
Information for you who are resident in another country but studying in Sweden.
The link below is for you who are resident in another country but studying in Sweden; it applies to income you receive from work and the study grants you receive during the period of study.
If you have been allowed a study grant in your own country any assessment of this will depend on the rules in your own country. The taxation in Sweden depends on whether there is an applicable tax treaty between Sweden and your “home country” and the rules given therein.
