It is possible to travel to many countries from Sweden. It is easy to get some days off from school to travel, but keep in mind that the courses are self-study oriented. You will have a great time if you balance all your time between studies, travel, parties and social arrengements. Read Review

HOUSING    
Personal assessment
Cost
KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.
Facilities
Location
Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: A room exchange
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why? Because of the easiness of meeting many people from the host country who can show you more of their culture.
Personal comments:
It is a bit pricey but it is worth it. Accomodation on campus has high quality standards. Clean, safe, near and very sociable.

Personal comments:
More in-site classes would be better, a bit too much self-study. A higher ratio of Swedish students to international students might be better.

EXPENSES    
The accessibility of student needs
Second-hand text books
KEY:
Very easy.
Minimal effort.
Accessible but required effort.
Almost impossible.
Second-hand household items
Computers / Internet
Administrative
Money from home
Main source of funding:
Family
Other sources of funding:
Family
Personal savings
Work opportunities:
I didn't explore any work options
Personal spending habits:
The standard of living is quite high. You get to see the tax money in the society, which I think is great. There are some things that are quite expensive but you learn to live with it, saving here or there. In the end you are a student and you need to learn something about economy.
Food, Nightlife, Overall, Telephone, Housing: was more expensive than at home.
Travel: was the same price as at home.
Personal comments:
Living expenses might surprise in the beginning, but you´ll get used to it. Find out as soon as possible the 2nd hand books. Try to cook as much as possible at home. In-house parties are also a good tip.

FINAL COMMENTS

It is possible to travel to many countries from Sweden. It is easy to get some days off from school to travel, but keep in mind that the courses are self-study oriented. You will have a great time if you balance all your time between studies, travel, parties and social arrengements.
