About Swedworks?

It is no longer possible to do the admission to Folkuniversitet ISU in Lund and proceed with the student residence permit on your own.  Folkuniversitetet ISU in Lund has outsource the management and handling of both admission process and the student residence permit processing for all non-EU applicants to Swedworks. The reason is to make sure that the application for student residence permit is done in a correct way and to secure the number of participants. Also, Folkuniversitetet ISU cannot help in the matter of residence permit for studies since they are a school and the subject is out of their core business. 


We at Swedworks AB are specialists in the Swedish immigration processing (work and residence permit) with years of experience and a proven record of successful cases. Swedworks AB is certified by the Sweidsh Migrations Agency (Migrationsverket) for work and residence permit processing.

Swedworks guarantees to obtain the admission to the course and to submit a complete and correct application for the student residence permit. However the final decision about the student residence permit is made by the Swedish immigration office. Depending on the reason of the rejection we have different policys which are described in the contract.
