Personal comments
It has been a great and rewarding experience, Though the language of instruction of my Bsc Degree was English, I still have made a lot of progress. Especially when communicating with people from other regions of the world (Sweden, US, UK, Western Europe, China, Japan...) speaking with different accents different from each other.

I wish I had known...
Nothing special. It was enough for me to be admitted to The Master Program and be provided with information on living expenes. However I would have liked to know a bit more about the interaction with companies.

Final comments
I have not only gained intercultural experience but also an understanding of the importance of being open minded flexible and independent. It is one of the greatest learning experiences of my life that is making me grow stronger more independent and autonomous, as well as fully integrating me into an international culture. Do not be afraid to come to Sweden because you do not speak swedish. Everybody here speaks english, you should also try Sweden during summer especially its two islands on the east coast.
