since you have B1 level and finish B2 level before going to germany,your lang. skill will give you an advantage over the 15 other students from India who may have A1 or A2 level at the max. Also Investing so much time and money for language, if you leave it abrupt you will lose the grasp over the lang over the time.

Also considering post study visa duration of 1 yr that Germany gives you, it is a better bet.

Visa processing: It wont take 2 to 3 months, unless you are missing some documents. It should take less than 8 weeks.
For German visa, you will need to deposit money in German account and you can't withdraw more than some specific amount every month, while for Sweden there is no such requirement.

About language, Swedish is related to German. Its easier for the German speaking people to learn Swedish.

Part time job, you will get it in Stockholm if you just want to.

Thanks for your response.

Of-course i thought of the point, that the language learnt will go out of touch. But as billa said, Svenska is similar to Deutsch, I just gone through the elementary lessons and found it easy.

Moreover i also think , i can retain the language proficiency by reading books and watching German movies, so that i will have some touch with German.

If not in Sweden, may be after graduation i may require it.Smile

But as you said, regarding Post study visa duration, Germany is good.Applause

Thanks for the information about visa process.

Whats ur opinion about job market after graduation & post study visa duration in Sweden?Rolling Eyes

@[gowthamtce]

ya i contacted them and got application procedures and forms.

It seems they start calculating interest from the time we borrow the money. Shame on you

@nathanmrs

nice comparison.

no. of Indians admitted Vs. job : wrong comparison, since job depends on the number of companies and openings and you have to compete with EU-guys for job, not with Indians. So avoid this criteria in your decision making. More number of Indians, better the information available to you about course, job etc.. and increased chances of getting good peers for the course.

tuition fees : 375euros*4-6 semsters. Not a big amount comparing 400-600euro/month living expense. Moreover there is a scholarship available for last 6 months of the study (amount to 2400euros).

I would suggest for Germany since the number of companies in the production sector are higher compared to Sweden (Germany is an exporter country with a world ranking less than 5, so naturally the production sector has to be high enough). Second is that you have a present proficiency of B1 and within 2 years you can reach upto C1/C2 without high effort. So after finishing course you might even be able to attend long meeting in German.

Before making a decision enquire about the job prospects after studies in Sweden for your area.

Thank you for your feedback.

What's your opinion about "Studying at KTH - Sweden & finding a intern/job at Germany".

In that case i think, I will have the chance to experience the high standard of education at KTH & job opportunities at Germany

What are my chances in that case?

Neutral

It is possible. The question is how much flexibility your course offers. But I don't know how German companies value Swedish degree and their preference in job selection. Mostly people do 6 month interns and 6 month thesis in company to create 1 year experience. But do your professor in KTH agree for this.

I had raised similar query to my program coordinator at KTH already and got the below response.


"You can do your master thesis work here in Sweden. But if you are an International student & if you want to start your carrier at your home country/ any other country, there are also possibility to do the degree Thesis work at that country with our support."

So really not sure , which one to choose.

one more point which i had missed in the above comparison is:
KTH - Integrated Product design - Only for last 2 years it is been run in English.(New program for International students, so have no Indian seniors to compare the career path)

TUHH - International prod management - Many references(Indian Students) are available to predict the career path.
