Personal social experience
Activities
KEY:
Amazing! Hardly had time to study.
Plenty to do when I had the time.
So-so.
Did not get involved.
Nightlife
Travel
Overall
Describe host city: Student life dominates the city
Travel: Takes place mostly within the university/student environment
Activities, Nightlife: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
The best night spot is Stallarna, a student's pub. It is not something special but the atmosphere is really familiar because most of the students are going there. I liked a lot a cafe in the center called Mila's. The decoration is different from teh other cafe's and it has as well great deserts. A place that you should not miss when the weather is warm enough is Evedal. You can swim on the alke at this place.

Personal comments:
All the cources were in English and also both the locals and the exchange students could understand and speak English. That made the communication really easy. I didn't have any problems. But because we thought that it would be really nice as far as we were in Sweden to learn Swedish as well, most of the exchange students took swedish courses at the university.
