The board of university academia has got several thousand applications for the spring semester here in Sweden from Pakistanians. Last year it was the same story with Nigerians.
The Swedish edjucational system is free for anyone that has high enough grades to get in to it. You actually get paid to be a student (and it's not really hard to get in to the higher educational system- maybe save for medical school- and even I did that!).
The question is; why do all these people come here. Well some suggest that there are "agents" that is getting paid for the task of encouraging third world youngsters to applicate. There are some proof for this.
The big question is; who excactly is paying them off? And why?
Time to put on the tin foil hat...
