Our story

Far back in history, in 2010 to be more precise, a question was put to a woman who was to become the founder of The newbie Guide to Sweden. The question was, "how do I get married in Sweden?" And the answer was "eeeerm, let me find out". This question, along with a lot of other Sweden related questions became the starting point for what was to be The Newbie Guide to Sweden which was launched in 2015.

About us

So what is the Newbie Guide? Well, the Newbie Guide is a digital platform that collects, translates and explains most of the things you need to know in order to make Sweden your home - both practical, social and cultural and that has helped thousand of newbies relocate and make Sweden their home.

The Newbie Guide to Sweden has:

  • Over 800 pages of free content for newbies in Sweden.
  • About 40.000 visitors every month.
  • Over 6 years experience helping and supporting newbies in Sweden.
  • A dedicated team of Swedes and newbies who have first hand knowledge of what it is to be a newbie AND the expertise and experience to provide solid and useful support.

But this is not The Newbie Guide to Sweden you will now very cleverly point out. And you are of course correct. This is Newbie Learn! But as the name probably tells you, Newbie Learn and The Newbie Guide are related. Newbie Guide is an information platform and Newbie Learn is a digital course platform where you can pick a course and delve into a particular topic.

During our years with The Newbie Guide we have realized that the more specific the information, the better. It can be really confusing to move to a new country and you often don't know which questions to ask or which answers to look for. So based on this information and all your feedback and input, we have created these courses that we know can be useful to your journey as a newbie in Sweden.
