Persons who have lived in an EU country for at least five years with a residence permit may apply for long-term resident status in that country. Persons who are granted long-term resident status receive a special EC/EU residence permit. This gives them certain rights, similar to those of an EU citizen. This makes it easier for them to move to another EU country in order to work, study, start their own business or live on their pension, for example. See more information from the Swedish Migration agency here and if you fulfil the requirements.
In other cases, if you are not EU citizen, in order to work in Sweden, you must have a work/study/visitors permit. Read more here.
In order to study for more than 90 days in Sweden, you must have a residence permit. Read more about how to apply for a permit for studies or research in Sweden at the Swedish Migration agency webpage.
The Swedish Institute has carried out two live broadcasts with the purpose of guiding through the process of applying for a residence permit for studies and applying to extend a residence permit for studies in Sweden. The Swedish Migration Agency was present and answered questions during the broadcasts. The entire presentation and the questions and answers that came during both broadcasts can now be seen afterwards on the Swedish Institute's Youtube channel.
