Here are some useful websites to help you plan your move to Sweden from the UK:

Moving to Sweden from the UK for the High Quality Healthcare System

The Swedish health care system is one of the best in the world and a very attractive proposition for people who want the best possible medical services for their family. The Swedish health care system is taxpayer funded, however there are some fees attached to medical services. For example, there are fees for doctors visits, but the amount is capped to a maximum of SEK 1,100 (about €117) per year. Medical care for children is always 100% free.

Moving to Sweden from the UK for a High Quality Education System

Many people move to Sweden from the UK to access the Swedish education system. The primary school system and high schools are among the best in the world.

The higher education system in Sweden is also one of the worlds best, ranking #2 in the world according to the U21 ranking system. The best part is — accessing the higher education system is completely free for Swedish citizens. If you are relocating to Sweden without becoming a Swedish citizen, the higher education system is still quite cheap, ranging from about €8,500 to to €14,900 in fees each year. You can learn more about studying in Sweden via the website.

Moving to Sweden from the UK for Better Working Conditions

Sweden has the best working conditions in the Western world. Workers get 5 weeks paid vacation each year and there is a very generous paid parental leave scheme. While Swedes do pay a lot of tax, the taxation system is very egalitarian and fair to the poorest people in the country.

Childcare is also heavily subsidised by the government, so you can send your children to day care without spending significant amounts of money. Many families struggle with the cost of childcare in other countries so are willing to relocate to Sweden for their financial well being and to improve their quality of life.

What is The Easiest Way to Move to Sweden from the UK?
