KTH Global Talent Programme

KTH Global Talent Programme offers a unique opportunity for global branding and recruitment of international talents within your company's business area. With company-funded scholarships you will have the opportunity to engage with competence for the future.

As one of Europe's leading technical universities, KTH attracts a large number of outstanding students from all over the world to our 60 master's programmes. Since tuition fees apply to students from outside the EU, the availability of scholarships is crucial for attracting excellent applicants.

KTH Global Talent Programme is an exclusive opportunity to shape your future skills supply while at the same time allowing international talents to develop together with your company and KTH. Participating companies will get global visibility through KTH's channels and networks.

KTH Global Talent Programme is in an expansive phase where we actively seek new partners. Companies that in recent years have offered scholarships in collaboration with KTH are ABB, Bombardier, Ericsson, SAAB and Scania.

"The scholarship has given me opportunity to network with ABB and get to work with them for a year with two internships and my degree project. It has also been an opportunity to expand my horizon, experience Swedish work culture and explore the quality work that I can contribute to and be a part of in the field of electric power."

Neha Kumari, KTH-ABB Scholarship recipient 2017

"Before I thought Saab was only in the automotive industry, but after researching them I found out that they are in the aerospace and defence sector. That made me more interested in the company and the scholarship since my bachelor's thesis and previous projects focused on developing defence technology for the Indonesian government."

Fadhil Mochammad, KTH-SAAB Scholarship recipient 2018

“Receiving the scholarship from Saab and KTH meant the world to me, quite literally! It is not just about financial support and ticking off the worry of student loans, it paved a path to spend time on pursuing what I love."

Nishita Vegi, KTH-SAAB Scholarship recipient 2015
