Personal recommendation
It is a good university, the best in Sweden together with KTH of Stockholm...It has a good international and domestic reputation among companies and in the academic world.May be, for someone would be difficult to get udjusted to the dark weather and the coldeness during the winter..It will be difficult to interact with Swedish students as well since they are conservative to my impression..But the experience to get to know a different academic approach and a different culture plus the highly valued international context makes the experience a very good one!

A helpful advice is to shut down all the prejudices once in Sweden and start to interact with the local environment from scrap..It will make the permanence easier in the beginning and funnier afterward.

You can buy a 30-day card to use public transportation. Good places to shop food/home: Willys, ICA Maxi, Netto(check their site for week promotions).

Chalmers helps me grow and prepare for excellent career opportunities

Overall
I have never experienced such an amazing and welcoming environment to study where I am growing academically and professionally.  The courses and methods of studies are hands-on and very practical. I study Architecture and Planning Beyond Sustainability at Chalmers and it has been fascinating that we worked with real clients, real sites, and real challenges in every course. The school is continuously improving by always having an evaluation where students' voices matter the most. The relationship between teachers and students are extremely cooperative and warm. I feel like we are a family and there is no strict hierarchy in the school. It definitely helps everyone to feel welcome and study well in the process. I also love how the school always help us through great discussions, career advisor, job fairs, open lectures, seminars, and workshops. I definitely would recommend Chalmers to students who are looking for an education for great career opportunities.

Pros
High-quality education with excellent hands-on methods of studies
Cons
Living expense in general (in the whole Scandinavia) is considered high compared to many countries, even though Gothenburg is not as expensive as bigger cities.

Overall
After receiving Swedish Institute scholarship to study at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden. This is one of the joyful day in my life on 2016. In my point to view graduate study a sequel to undergraduate study opens up newer avenues to explore and gives one a wider range of career objectives. I have done my master in Structural Engineering and this programe mostly based on project and hard calculations. After the two year of my study at Chalmers I have a confident in the use of ABAQUS FEM Modelling,  AutoCAD with MS Office skills and Simulation more widely. Previously I have some experience in teaching and professional work in building construction sector, that help me a lot during my study.

Student life at Chalmers

Overall
I'm very impressed of the quality of the lectures at Chalmers. Professors are very well prepared to teach its subject and the material is really well structured. Assignments meet the goal of being challenge enough to complement the understanding of the topics. At Chalmers I learned to be a more commited and organized student by keeping my readings and assignments in order, which allow me to follow the lectures.

In the campus you can also find every week talks and presentations of companies, organizations and state of the art projects working with Chalmers where you attend and even have lunch. 

I'm also very satisfied with the social life on the campus, since they provide you with so many associations and clubes where you can share your interests with other students. These groups are either cultural, scientific or for any hobby.  You can always find something to do inside the campus on your free time.

As a student travelling around Sweden its half price if you compare with adults.If you want to take a plane and you are under 26 you can choose really cheap ones(last minute booking).To go out you have to take into account that in lot of place the age to get in its 25 but thats true that exits places in which you dont need be over 26.
