Being Swedish is kinda convenient..

Something that's really convenient about being Swedish is that Australian universities love Swedish students. Swedes don't need to get an OSHC (Overseas Student Health Cover) which all the other exchange students need to get, since they know we automatically have health insurance from the Swedish government. We don't need to send proof of funding either, since they know we automatically get money from CSN for all our studies. Also, when we send in our applications, we get special forms for Swedish students that don't require a bunch of documents and information. All exchange students need to send a translation of their school documents and certificates or a conversion of what their grades would be equivalent to, but not the Swedes - since they're already so familiar with the Swedish academic system. Hahaha.. no wonder so many Swedes want to study in Australia! :D
