Personal comments
For students who like to go out i recommend not to choose bars and clubs which are expensive, because there are a lot of bars that are good and have good music but are cheaper. Talk with local community and you will find great (cheaper) places. Avoid going to the restaurant very often. Cook at home and take your own food at university (that's what local people do too).

Overall
I wish I had known...
It is good to try to find activities mixing local and international students (courses, sport...) so that the contacts with local people is eased. Try to apply for an intensive Swedish course from home, so that you don't have to wait one semester to start the language course (long waiting list).

Tip: try to prepare your documents for the Resident permit application from home (certificate of financial means, social and personal insurance certificates), you will save time. Visit the neighbour Scandinavian countries.

Though there is quite a bit interaction with the industry, a little bit more would have done no harm.

It was great to be a part of KTH. Overall, Sweden is a nice country to be visiting, especially in the summer, with people generally helpful. The swedish people are generally are nice people. People tell that Swedes do not talk much. But, I found out that once you get to talk with them, they open up and are great to speak to.

The dorms were perfect, price was excellent and the facilities are everything students can need, the environment inside the dorms is very international, during my stay I shared with people from America, Europe and Asia, having a good cultural mix, learning swedish is really important to enjoy even more the time at KTH.

Personal comments
The host university was very receptive to their foreign students and I was at rather ease with everything. However, there was a constant learning of habits and attitudes of the people around me that made the experience so enthralling. Understanding people and their different social customs and how to adapt accordingly was my biggest gains in studying in a foreign location.
