Why are people moving to Sweden from the UK?
Sweden is a very successful modern democracy with a prosperous economy, high standard of living and interesting culture. It is often cited as being an example of how to run a country well, with a fair, free and egalitarian society. The most popular reasons for moving to Sweden include:
- A high level of personal and financial freedom
Sweden is a very free country, with strong laws protecting the rights of citizens. It is politically progressive with same-sex marriage and a high level of religious freedom. The citizens of Sweden enjoy more rights and freedoms compared to many other countries.
- A pristine natural environment
Many people move to Sweden just to enjoy the natural environment! There are countless outdoor activities to enjoy in Sweden including the bike trails in Dalarna, the Tree Hotel in Harads, eco-adventures in Nutti Sami Siida and fishing near Everts Sjöbod. The Swedes love spending time outside so you will make plenty of new friends while enjoying the great outdoors.
- A high standard of living
Sweden is a very prosperous country with a strong social safety net. Wages are high, spending power is high, unemployment is low and living expenses are reasonable. Because the Swedish society is so egalitarian, assistance is available for people who are struggling to earn enough money to survive.

Sweden spends a significant amount of the government budget on education. They consider having a good education to be an essential human right. Teachers are well paid and highly respected, which helps to attract many talented people into the profession. Sweden ranks above the United Kingdom for educational outcomes in maths and science.
Compulsory schooling starts when a child turns 7 — when they attend Grundskoleutbildning. It continues until the age of 16, then they have the option of entering the workforce or performing an additional 3 years of school (Gymnasieutbildning).
