    Previously lived in Stockholm for several years. This is a good school with a good reputation. Do lots of research on the cost of living. Renting in the city is expensive and there is a shortage of apartments so finding accomodation can be tricky. You will earn enough to live but if you are hoping to save, Stockholm is not for you! PM me if you have any questions!

    Really expensive city. Lovely cultural approach to work and life and family. But really expensive. And housing is a nightmare.

    I heard from others that schools don't even offer assistance in finding accomodation because it's so difficult

    An English Language website, The Local, will be able to answer many of your questions. It recently had an article on foreign teachers in Sweden and has had many articles on finding apartments. I have found it very useful.

    Sweden is expensive. However, services (health, transportation) and work/life balance are quite good. It would, in my opinion be a good place to start a family (parental leave benefits are excellent). However, it would not be a place to save a great deal of money.
