In Sweden you have to pay when you go to the doctor for the first visit. It is the same for Swedish, THEY PAY TO RECEIVE a normal medical review. Amazing not even in Spain. In Uppsala, though it is an Student City, there are no speacial tickets for Students. I mean in Madrid you pay $20 you can take all the means you want as times as you need.

Personal recommendation
For Students who want to go there: It is a great University, professor are very well prepared, enviroment is amzaing. Just be plenty of money, buy ski clothes, forget sun, admire swedish girls and you will have a unforgettable period.For the University: try to offer more lesson's hours, more lectures. People need a minimu "rythim" to realize they are studing. Try to gather and stimulate Swish students with foreigners. When you establish your agreement with another university, try that foreign universities benefit in one way their own students if they decide to learn Swedish.(In Carlos III University they DO NOT CARE ANYTHING if you make the effort to learn Swedish, it is not recognized in your record, you have to cry to make them care about swedish). Please improve your restaurant, I was always hungry. Please offer good food, chicken, meat, bread,etc not these salads!! improve coffe. Make clear to student if they have passed the subject. I thought I had passed Marketing Research in Novemeber Madrid Erasmus Office notified my I havent passed this subject because they lacked my group report. I had to repeat it by my own, and thanks to Mr.Thuman compression finally I could passed the exam 3/4 year later than when supposedly I would have to have passed it.

Eramus experience has been the best during my university life. I have learned a lot, I encourage all the students to carry out this experience. I ask to European Union and my goverment to equip Erasmus grants with appropriate economic budgets to make possible not only for medium rich people the possibility to go in another countries. Meanwhile the European mobility since people are very young through Europe we won't have a real Europe. The first step to garantee the future of the Union is to make affordable for everyone the mobility around Europe. In my opinion two points would have to be compulsory for the university students: 1)to go out of their own country at least for one year. 2) to learn the language of host country besides english of course.

Travel at every opportunity, meet as many people as possible, and get involved. There are activities for everyone, and your stay is as good as you make it. Right when you get there you will probably feel homesick, especially if during dark winter, but it will pass.

I can recommend this university. There are opportunities to study even though you would not know the local language. Also housing free time activities are well arranged.

No, I think the best part of it was going without knowing what my experience was going to be.

Collect useful information before going like housing, cost living, travelling facilities. But be always open to new cultures and experiences that can make you improve in a personal, academic and professional way.

I wanted to learn Swedish. BUT people speak english perfectly and if you tried to speak swedish they lose patience very fast. After if you spoke Swedish people started to see you not as a respectful EU citizen but as a dangerous possible emigrant. They dont appreciate very much the fact you want to learn their language. They see that as a threat, "another foreigner to support within our welfare state" they don t realize you can be very profitable for their economy and society. Unfortunately If you despise swedish as an useless language (only spoken by 9 milion people) they respect you more, In my opinon swedish society is fed up of receiving emigrants from the most distant countries as Iran, chile, Bosnia. Swedish are good people and very open and inocent, they always believe whatever you tell them, they never lie, I like very much this facet of Sweish. Just because this culture and behaviour Swedish had deceived by emigrants and in one way I understand why they look suspiciously to foreingers, they are good but not stupid. Now I m learning swedish for my own, because in spite of everything I like Sweden, Swedish and Swedish language. I regret not to have taken advantage of my situation when I was there. BUT IT WAS TERRIBLY DIFFICULT, and by the way at this time I was not very proficient not even in English so taking 2 languages at the same time was crazy. Anyway it is a shame for the swedish language but my overall communication was OK. Though I would have liked to speak in Swedish with some people I met I could not. But I m sure I WILL

Join one of the more international oriented nations. It is obligatory to join one anyway. They will organize the most for you and maybe you can organize somethings yourself?!
