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.

Staying close to the University helped as it saved me valuable cost of SL pass which costs now about 620 Kronors. So a student can save money even if the housing costs a little bit more.

Final comments
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.

Housing was decent. Though it was great to be placed near the university, the place could have been more towards the city not on the outskirts of the city.
