    Study in Canada (Hamilton) or Sweden ( Stockhom)
    Hi everyone, Thank you for your kind helps that may assist me a lot.
    My nick name is Bruce from Thailand,
    I got offer of place from McMaster uni to study pre-master (level 4) in Economcs before pursuing Master level later. Also I have been admitted to study at the Master's level in Economics at Stockhom uni, Sweden. I would like to work after I obtain my Master degree in Canada if I study at McMaster Uni. After I got some work experience, I will study PhD in Economics.

    I am very grateful to find this community which may provide me useful information in particular areas of the living cost at Hamilton area, University life, job opportunities, and Canadian's perspective on Foreign student (asian), summer jobs in Canada, accommodation.

    Now, I don't know which country I should go to study between Canada or Sweden. There are a lot of concerning factors to be considered such as the cost lving in Canada ( specially at Hamilton area), wiil I be able to find a job with undergradute degree in Economics during the summer holidays, are the employers tend to hire someone with canadian experience, are uni students over there drink excessively, are there many jobs opportunities in Canada for graduated with Master's degree in Economics specialise in Financial Economics, Forecasting and Statistical analysis , and what are Canadian views on asian immigrant, students.

    Sweden, the tuition fees over there is free of charge for oversea students which it is very cool but must cover your own cost of living and the job opporunity is in my view is very slim for non-EU students to work part time, summer and after graduated. If I go to sweden, they let me to study Master level not pre master level as in Canada. The housing in Stockholm is very hard to find, but I don't know about Canada. What is your view on the cost of living when comparing to Canada. If I go to Stockholm uni, after I graduate, what is the possibility for me to find a job in Canada and immigranting to Canada.

    Thank you very much in advance for your kind answers :)

    You can find cheap student housing in Stockholm. Check out or (or was it .org?) Also, the university should have some networking site where you can buy a bike for cheap, whatever furniture you'll need, etc. Stockholm is a great city- probably your living expenses will be $10,000/yr. The lifestyle is different though- cooking at home is the norm, not eating out and goods/shopping are expensive.
