Personal comments
The courses taken in the university were in english and all the papers and the presentations shown at the end of each course must be done in english. At the beginning the difficulties seem unsormontable, only after weeks it s possible to feel the difference.No more trouble explaining your theory in front of professors or other students, any problems of communication, also outside university.

Final comments
The overall experience is evaluated as positive. The university life allowed me to meet interesting people and to improve my interpersonal skills. The cost of life is quite high, expecially considering the food, so everyone want to go to the north had to take this into account

Personal comments
The Gothenburg campus is located 20 minutes on foot and 10 by bike. The internet LAN connection allowed me to work easily with people staying at home! The space of each room is enought for a person, and the toilet included makes the accomodation pretty useful
