Writing your Bachelor’s or Master’s thesis in collaboration with a company

On the verge of your graduation from university in Sweden, you are about to write either a Bachelor’s or Master’s thesis. The thesis is the final project in a particular area before entering into the real job market.

A unique way to approach your Bachelor’s or Master’s thesis is in collaboration with an organisation in Sweden within your area of studies on a real life problem. Cooperating with a company or a public institution gives you the opportunity to apply the knowledge gained during your studies and put it into practice.

What is more, it is a common practice for employers in Sweden to use thesis collaborations to scan talented candidates - and maybe even assign the graduates who excel in their thesis a permanent full-time position after submitting it. Collaborating with a company or institution while writing your thesis is also another way to expand your professional network and see what it is like to be in a real working environment.

Plenty of large companies such as ABB, AF Gruppen, Atlas Copco, Axis Communications & CGI have offices in Sweden, and the country’s unemployment level is well below the European average. This makes the Scandinavian country a very interesting location for student and graduates looking for thesis. Private companies contribute to approximately 90% of the country’s industrial production, and about 70% of total GDP is attributed to the services sector. A large piece of Sweden’s foreign trade is directed towards other European countries, with Germany as the main trading partner.  

The universities in Sweden offer their students a range of programmes that can help you start and advance your career in different ways. 10 of them are active partners in the Graduateland Network, among them University of StockholmLund University and Linköping University.
