Here is your chance to get an insight into student life at Linköping University. Our international master's and exchange students want to share their experiences of life and studies in Sweden. Read their stories and feel free to ask questions if you want to know more.
I've come all the way from Western Australia to further my degree and gain new experiences. I'll be writing about my academic journey at Linköping University plus everyday life here, with a young family along for the ride!

One of my favourite things at LiU are the well equipped student kitchens. They even have fridges, so you can BYO lunch and store it. There are also microwaves so you can heat it up. There are sinks, so you can fill up your own water bottle, and tables to sit down and enjoy your [...]
Continuing our quest for forest, we headed to Tinnerö eklandskap on Sunday. Well, only part of it is a forest. There’s grazing, farmland, an oak forest- all in all 687 hectares of nature reserve reaching right up to Linköping. Yes, wow! We caught a bus to Gamla Linköping then swapped to a bus to Lambohov. We [...]
I'm Hugo from France. This blog is about my personal experiences in Scandinavia, emphasizing on some cultural differences and centered on my life as a master’s student at LiU in Sweden.
As I said previously, the previous weeks have been really dedicated to the master thesis. For a ‘Pre-Final seminar’, our supervisor, Marie Bengtsson, asked to provide her with a complete version of our thesis by April 30th. To describe what she expects, she uses the metaphor of a Swiss cheese: our thesis can have holes [...]

Have you been to the Airplane Museum—Flygvapenmuseum? If not, please do! So, one of my childhood friends who lives in the UK and who had been doing an internship in Gothenburg for the past few weeks, decided to pay me a visit few days ago. She hasn’t seen Linkoping, and I had a place [...]
I think winter in Sweden is quite beautiful. The snow is …pretty—dust like, vanilla sugar like, marshmallow cream like. The last time I experienced snow-winter was in Missouri, USA in 2010-2011, and the lowest it got there was I think a minus eleven (might be wrong, but somewhere near that). So, I was a little [...]

We have started observing Aurora around 9PMto make sure our equipment such as camera, tripod has set. Our observation team had waited more than two to three hours [...]
There was a lot of free time prior to the next event in Lapland so we have decided to walk around the hostel. In fact, there were plenty of spot to visit around Kiruna. When we walk past the little forest, there was a beautiful landscape which contains mountain, snow and sunlight. Since it [...]
