Beware the cold, especially if you are in southern Europe like me. Otherwise it was all a perfect experience.

I think.. it┤s important to choose a place with many different people, i mean..from different countries. Then, you can learn a lot about other places and adapt many of your customs to new ones after know how the people live in other countries. The accommodation is, sometimes, even more important than the university. And of course, one of the reasons of living an erasmus experience is to have a big and nice cultural shock.

This year has been for me really interesting and helpful for the understanding of international business life. The mix of culture is wonderful and improve your general knowledge. Sweden is a country where it is not too expensive to travel which is a great opportunity to discover many countries like Finland, Norway, Estonia... Students has access to many discounts(food,travel,library...)

I'm really happy of having had this experience. The country is really nice and very different from mine. Karlstad is a very good place for studying because even it isn't a big city, it offers you a lot of activities.
