I never lived in a better condition. ALl the furniture in my room were from IKEA and I had such a big room just for myself. My Belgian and Swedish roomates were really nice and we had dinner together once every week. That's when we had the chance to sit down and really talk and have fun!

Course recommendations:
I studied Strategy and Technology. It was quite hard with a lot of group work and individual work. However, it was interesting, high quality and teachers were well prepared.

And do not miss the swedish course it was very good and funny.
