It is handy to open a Swedish account, but not necessary. It is very useful to bring your own computer or laptop! Because at the end of each module the computer rooms are more then occupied. Take a laptop if you can I would say, you can also quite easily (you have to put some effort in that) arrange an internet connection at home, so that is an extra reason! Then you can also call home for free from your computer! (Depending on what country you are from).

Växjö University is the best organised university I know. There is the great international office and of course VIS: Växjö International Students, this organisation is there specially for the Internationals. They organise trips and parties, as well as the welcome dinner which is free and you can get to know people. They also have a fadder system. This means when you arrive you have a fadder (Swedish or international student who has already been here for a while). They guide you around and help you to find your way around campus and in the studentlife! In the end you receive a yearbook made by your generation International students. This book contains stories and pictures from the whole semester! What a memory! It is fun to be in the yearbook committee and make that yearbook!

VERY VERY IMPORTANT!! The winter in Sweden is very very cold!! -20! So take very very warm clothes, gloves, hats, sjawls and jackets! I would recommend thermo underwear as well! It helped me out! Go and see Sweden! Look around, places to see are: *Stockholm *Uppsala *Göteborg *Malmö *Lund *Kopenhagen *Halmstad and down following the coast! All of this you can do easily and best by car. Even more because renting a car is the only thing that is quite cheap here in Sweden! It is worth it! Especially in Summer then everything is even more beautiful! The spring semester is best if you ask me.

travel trips Stockholm, Copenhagen, Adventure trip by bike at Evedal, Helsinborg and Elsingor, Oland natural preistoric park, Gotland, Kalmar castle. Advices If you are not an open minded person, easy going and really active it will be difficult to integrate with the other internationnal and much more difficult with Swedish because you have always to start to speak and to be friendly with them. Compared to my country they are much more reserved, but in my experience if you start to speack with them by time they will become really friendly and supportive. It just take more time and you need been patient.

For the people that will go to study to this University I will say that it is really nice and that the quality of the courses is pretty good. But it is hard also so you must work a lot and you should renounce to some other thing sometimes. And for the university I will tell them that they help a lot the students but they have to bear in mind that the international students don´t have all the facilities so sometimes they should help them a little bit more, specially with the administrative ones.

Flight costs, train costs and generally travel expenses. Arrange your route carefully to avoid unneeded spending.

Hmmm... read carefully the study guide you will receive before going... it sums up all you will need to take care of before departing.. lots of tips and advice too there! Email the international office... they're extra-helpful all the time and they answer really soon. Very organized and well-working country in general!

The entire experience was awesome. The only thing I would change is to mix more internationals with regular students so the student experience turns out to be stronger in all aspects.

It is possible to travel to many countries from Sweden. It is easy to get some days off from school to travel, but keep in mind that the courses are self-study oriented. You will have a great time if you balance all your time between studies, travel, parties and social arrengements.

I wish I had done some research on Sweden before I arrived! I knew nothing at all! It wasnt as cold as I expected so all of the big wool sweaters were completely unnecessary! But I learned all I needed to know once I got here.

I would definately recommend it!! I was extremely lucky by getting placed in Växjö. I honestly did no research at all when deciding where to study abroad but it was fate that brought me to Växjö. It was the perfect international environment!

If you have the chance, I would recommend that you come to Växjö. It is small enough so that you feel a part of it and but large enough so that there is always something to do. The international office is really good about arranging trips and I could say after 6 months that I knew every single international student. It was the best experience of my life! And I am still here in Sweden! :)
