How difficult is it to get a job in after recieving the degrees, is it essential for me to get the highest educational degree in these specified degrees or is it pretty much all about luck later on? For example, what chances are there that I will work with astrophysics/aerospace engineering if I get the degree instead of e.g electrical engineering?

Also can anyone give the approximate career growth of these careers? (e.g it's growing fast/slowly)

for astrophysics, I think you need a PhD from the best schools, some clear talent via published papers and some luck at finding a good university job where you can continue your research.

For aerospace it depends on the economy more, like having an MS degree you might find a job at an aerospace company.

Does it matter where you get your degree, or is it the same everywhere? I'm currently in Sweden, would that prevent my degree from applying outside of Sweden e.g usa?

Many aerospace jobs in the US will require you to be a US citizen.
That being said the degree will most likely be viewed the same as long as your university is accredited.
