Final comments
I had a lot of fun, met new people. Swedish people are very friendly, but I was not easy to find good friends amoung Swedes because the erasmus network is very big, and a lot of exchange students are always together. Well it is up to you, I am improving my swedish everyday and I am trying to find a balance between beeing with erasmus students and with the Swedish students. To finish, I really recommand to go abroad, and Linkoping is a very good choice, I feel like a real student :-) so don t hesitate, just do it, you won t regret it, and if you do I will take the responsablity.

Personal comments
You'd better watch for discounts. Especialy discounts for travels by train and plane for people under 25 may be especially attractive.

Personal comments
I speak English, also before going there and the university was pretty English oriented, which made it harder for me to motivate myself to learn the local language. I tried however with an intensive language course at the beginning of the semester

Personal comments
Although for some students it can be hard to find accomodation straight away due to the high demand, the conditions are excellent. There is a good atmosphere in the corridors and it is a good way to make friends. The rooms are also well furnished and spacious.

downtown, Steve's coffee, Nationarnahaus or plata (especially on thursdays). Sweden is a beautiful country, so everything has to be seen especially the polar cercle in winter. It's also good idea to go to Copenhagen.
