    Your questions are quite general indicating that you have not done a lot of research about studying in Sweden, but you seem to already have your mind set on living with "some family" in Ängelholm, which seems very specific, especially given that the only institution of higher education in Ängelholm is the Railway Training Centre.

    Your English is very poor for a native speaker. Still you seem confident that you in just a few months will be speaking a foreign language well enough for university studies.

    Is this a scam?

    If you live by yourself you have to prove that you can afford to live in Sweden, which costs about 10 000 USD annually. On a student visa you're allowed to work 20 hours a week, since you're an EU citizen however I don't know if you even need a visa.. I have no idea what rules applies for you.

    You will not get funded since you're not a Swedish citizen, we get 116 USD a month as long as we study and when we study at a university or college we can also barrow money from the state, 8000 Swedish crowns a month, I don't know how much that is in USD though. Probably a little over 1 100.

    Ask if I've forgotten something, gtg.

    Why don't you look for an organisation in Sweden that deals with foreign students? E-mail one of the colleges to ask if they know of such an organisation.
