New agreement opens up for more Colombian masters students at SLU

Published: 11 September 2017

SLU have signed a cooperative agreement with the Colombian foundation Colfuturo. Colfutoro works to provide financial support and increase the possibilities of Colombian citizens to access high-quality postgraduate study programs abroad.

The new agreement means that Colfuturo highlights SLU as a prioritized alternative for Master's studies in Sweden, while SLU offer a reduction in tuition fee to up to two students approved by Colfuturo each year.

- Talented international students are highly important in maintaining high study quality at SLU, and the knowledge students learn at SLU might contribute positively to Colombia's future. For Sweden, good relations with the third largest economy in Latin America is of crucial importance, and our future alumni can through this agreement contribute to this, says Geir Löe, Senior International Officer, at the Division of Educational Affairs.
