Course recommendations
I did the Communications course which was fun and interactive and not really all that serious. The best thing about many of the courses offered for international students is that Swedish students are allowed to do them too, so you get the best of both worlds. We went on a field trip too to Berlin which was pretty cool.

Personal comments
To tell the truth, I wasn't really there for the academics. BUT! I did enjoy the classes I took and the group projects we did. Other people did more serious courses than I did (like international law) which required more focus, but they seemed to learn a lot from those too.

Course recommendations
Business Strategy Management is the best course I took there, really impressive. International Marketing is a good value course (measured by the amount of work it takes to get good grades). A huge percentage of students couldn't pass the Corporate Finance course but it's a very interesting one. Courses with essays (as opposed to exams) offer the best value.

It would have been better if there were more native English teachers, more case studies and better local student involvement.

Course recommendations
Professor Iain Cameron is a bit of hard task master but his course in International Law was inspirational. Don't take this course if you want to party. Do take this course if you want to discover a very fluid, constantly changing, challenging and very rewarding area of law. I would especially recommend it if you are interested in international affairs and politics.

Not really. If you want to study then you can reach your potential and more, if not then you can enjoy the great parties.

Course recommendations
Immunology is supposed to be pretty good. I took Biophysical chemistry MN1(supposed to be the hardest course, but it's not so bad. The class was very small, so I got to know many locals). Project work is an excellent experiment, just make sure you'll get along with your supervisor.

Some of the courses were somewhat unorganized. They usually have several lecturers, so I suppose it can get quite difficult to make sure everything goes smoothly.

Academic
Course recommendations
Courses are very interactive (at least by Swiss standards), professors and Swedish students are very welcoming towards internationals. Courses are easy to pass as long as you participate in group projects and seminars, but coming home with above average grades is definately an effort.

Be attentive to course descriptions, and refer to anyone who has already taken the course for advice. In my experience a lot of the courses were too similar.

The Media and Communication stream of subjects was definitely not a difficult course.

Personal comments
In most courses, you study one subject intensely for several weeks and then have an exam, before moving on to the next course. This was a very different type of assessment to what I was used, and took a bit of getting used to. No room for cramming before exams. It was necessary to keep up with the readings and class notes all of the time.
