Your home away from home

Finding accommodation in Lund is considered one of the most challenging parts of student life. So it was for me 🙂 Without going deep into detail I would recommend you to keep on trying to get one from LU accommodation or AF Bostäder, or through the student nations, if you are still looking for it. This is a safer way … Continue reading

Traffic in Lund

Lund is a nice small town. You can easily reach everywhere by bike in 20 mins from Lund center. However, bike traveling more than half an hour everyday could be quite tiring because the town is not flat. I had a hard time the first semester when I lived in green house, which is all the way down to the edge … Continue reading

A-building — take a look inside

This gallery contains 8 photos.

For those who are preparing to come in August or just consider studies here, it might be useful to know a little about A-building.

After a year one can say for sure that it is a … Continue reading

On 30 April, as spring approaches, Lund University students gather together in Stadsparken (the city park) for Valborg, or ‘Siste april’ (the last day of April) for a festive celebration. During the day, students in groups have barbecues and … Continue reading

How (not) to procrastinate

Better weather, ongoing thesis work; two perfectly good reasons to get your mind set on procrastinating. I’d say a good way of procrastinating is going out to enjoy the weather, whenever possible. In Helsingborg, it can be really nice to visit the park at Kärnan or go to the harbour or shore called Gröningen. However, don’t plan to be there … Continue reading

If you call for participants for your research

I’ve just run two focus groups. Information got during in focus groups discussions is very important for my research. But! Although one said that it would be easy to find volunteers who would be happy to spend an hour or so on reading comics, the process appeared to be extremely difficult. Why? Yes, there are many students on campus, but … Continue reading
