Course recommendations:
English or Swedish its your choice. Only a limited number of courses available in English, get the list from the University web site (www.liu.se). If you want to study the whole time you can, if you want to party the whole time thats your choice too. I recommed to get to know as many people as you can, if that means drinking a large quantity of Åbro (beer) well who'd be complaining! Back regarding courses, you get to take your exams again if you fail the first time. Not the case at my Uni! (not that i've ever failed!)

Never hesitate to ask teachers, there will always be a helping hand. If you want to learn Swedish, take courses given in Swedish. Most of the courses contain laborations which give a deeper insight in the theoretical learnt, don't be afraid of these labs.

All in all it was good ... keep on going with the practical work in the labs, that ws really better than in Germany. A bit more and deeper insight in the theoretical background would have been sometimes desirable. Keep your flexibility!

Course recommendations:
The course-system is totally different from the system i know from Germany. The classes are not that big and the communication with the teacher is much better than in Germany. In Sweden, it seems that everything gets done with group-work, at least i made the experience. In conclusion, I can say that it is a very different way of studying compared with my home university. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this way more than the german way.
