Everyone in Sweden is quite good at English which made things easier for me. Swedish people are very generous and helpful. That's why I am very happy with my communication experience in Sweden and at Chalmers University of Technology.

Personal comments
I didn't experienced any financial surprise for which I am still awaiting. I found out some cost-saving tips myself like purchasing second-hand goods, purchasing foods from the countryside markets and quitting smoking

Course recommendations
The MS course is known as International Masters Programme for Hardware for Wireless Communications.The whole course is neatly and minutely designed. But interaction with the local students of other courses should have been better. I would be very happy if the university thinks about in future.

Final comments
For the very first time of my life I enjoyed the snowfall in Goteborg. It was really exciting. Chalmers University of Technology is very famous and I am proud to be a Chalmerist ( student of Chalmers). Winter becomes quite unbearable and it is recommended to bring some extra and waterproof warm clothes.

Personal comments
Favourite night spots are Brunsparken and Nordstan. At Brunsparken, which is at the center of Goteborg, many youths gather to have fun and a huge queue can be seen at every pub or bar. Best cafe : Burger King because its cheap and delicious. I feel very sorry for myself if I miss any rock concert. Liseberg is the most exciting place which must not be missed.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
Since my present abott is quite far away from the university, it is not possible to study at the university after midnight. It takes about 30 minutes to come the university and its also expensive.

Personal comments
This year many students got the chance to study at this famous university and that's why there was some scarcity of accomodation. As far as I could realize, the university should have been more prudent about this situation.
