Course recommendations
English or Swedish its your choice. Only a limited number of courses available in English, get the list from the University web site (www.liu.se). If you want to study the whole time you can, if you want to party the whole time thats your choice too. I recommed to get to know as many people as you can, if that means drinking a large quantity of Åbro (beer) well who'd be complaining! Back regarding courses, you get to take your exams again if you fail the first time. Not the case at my Uni! (not that i've ever failed!)

As i've already mentioned Linköping University is a great place to study or party. I choose to party and met a heap of great people and had a marvellouse time. I think it is likely that you can have the same extraordinary experience!

Personal spending habits
Offcourse you always spend more whilst away from home! However I guess Sweden is a little more expensive than most countries but its all part of living the student life in Sweden! Alcohol is the hard one, costing quite a bit more.

Brew your own beer and only drink spirits on special occasions! Also, make sure to try Swedish punch (spirit like).

Swedes speak great English so you can get away without speaking a word of English. However, I suggest you study the languange as much as possible, especially if your like me and only speak English fluently :o(

The accomodation is great. You get your own rather large room with bathroom; shower, toilet and sink. Share lounge room and kitchen with six other non-exchange students (usually).

Personal comments
The beloved Herrgår'n (HG) will remain number one according to most exchange students. Located right in the middle of the student accomodation its hard to beat on Friday or Saturday night with Naoki on the dance floor! Try Tuesday evenings for international student night. The other student ran club is Natiernas Hus (Nations House, NH -sorry I spelt it wrong in Swedish).
