It's a really good university, it shouldn't change much. All the people (exchange student coordinators, teachers, etc.) it's very kind and polite. I really loved it.

I loved to stay here, and I'm sure every student should have a kind of experience like this, being an international student. This city offers you lot of fun and you can have lot of more friends, forever!! Tips: it's difficult to get in touch with the local students, try to know some Swedish "traditions" before. Anyway, it's very possible that you'll find people from your home country, too. The social security is not free! So please, don't get ill. BRING A LOT OF MONEY You can travel a lot, it's not expensive and it's really fun!

Try to bring a personnal computer to enjoy high speed internet connection from your own room (ask transportation company for rates if you don't have a laptop computer). Buying last minute ticket whithin the train is some times cheaper if you travel with an InterCity train (not with the X2000). Stand-by airplane tickets from Stockholm is a good way to travel through Sweden (don't miss upper North of Sweden...for a sample of adventure). Check first on SAS website to have an idea of available seats for the outcoming planes before reaching the airport. Travelling is easy and Scandinavia is wonderfull!

Keep on going with the amazing variety of student activities. Never stop to spend money for the education the equipment as it has happend in Germany. Stay as open minded as it is, I enjoyed the uncomplicated contact with the teachers.

In the end I have to say that it was a great year for me, maybe the best of my life. Most of the people enjoyed their stay and I personaly extended my stay here from six month to one year, it is great to experience a full cycle. Never hesitate to ask for help or for anything else, Swedes like to give a helping hand, that is my impression, have never experienced something else. Enjoy your time!! Sebastian

Go to valborg in Uppsala, if you don't know anyone there or/and can't get a ticket for the night still go there it is amazing. Going up north is pretty cheap if you take either a stand-by plane ticket or the train (a bit more expensive, but you see much more). Har det bra Jan-Eric

Take the Swedish courses offered. If only for the fun, international atmosphere and great people you get to know. If writing a thesis, do it at a lab. You are welcomed with open arms and integrated into lab life quickly. Watch your money and time deadlines.

You should bring a fascination for this country. Then travel around and notice the subtle differences. Enjoy nature, and enjoy the people.

I knew before that Sweden is commonly more expensive than Germany. But I was surprised about the big difference.

Although the university is quite bis with its 20.000 students you feel familar. I think the reason for that was the small size of the classes and the good communication with teh teacher. But at the beginning, I had problems with the bureaucracy at the university. For several things you need special card to enter, for example. But in whole, i really enjoyed the atmosphere at the Campus.

Try to travel and see as much things as you can. You will never have the possbility again. But spend money before you go. Otherwise you will probably get in financial trouble.
