Learned it the Hard Way

If there is one thing that I learned to survive the weather in Sweden, that is.. When the sky looked bright and you feel like having a bit of the sun on your skin, do it right now! (Don’t wait for any reason, except if you really could not do it).  I experienced it several times already, and I could … Continue reading

Exploring Finland! Or how to (not) seek the Northern Lights

Hi everyone! Today I am gonna write about a small trip I recently made to Finland. After study period 1 I certainly needed some vacations and me and my friends decided to travel to Finland.

China Study trip Vol.1

Nadja’s post about the Urban Design Competition in China was so on point with everything everyone else was feeling the weeks prior to the trip in itself and then with what happened during those two weeks we were in Chengdu, China. For me, the opportunities the SUDes program offers its students during the study trips goes beyond being able to … Continue reading

The Worst Month in the North

In contrary to what I’ve said about October in the previous post, November has always been the worst for me (it’s not like I’ve been through a lot of November, as this is only my second one). Nothing to look up to, Christmas is still in around 50 days, the darkness and the coldness are depressing, and I feel most … Continue reading

Out of the box…

The most exciting thing for me studying at Lund University is the opportunity to earn credits on something besides the courses offered within the programme. This includes on-going research projects, internships and your own project. This is what some of us have been doing during the Autumn semester, I find this is a good way to get into the swing … Continue reading

Learning Swedish

I started over with SFI (Svenska För Invandrare) again 2 months ago. I really recommend you guys to take it as well.

It doesn’t hurt to learn some Swedish, and also, it’s … Continue reading

October in a wrap!

October has been amazing! We had kanelbullensdag (kanelbullar’s day) on the 4th of October. Kanelbullar is basically a cinnamon roll or cinnamon bun. And living in Sweden for one year, I would say that it is pretty much a Swedish thing! You can buy it in supermarkets, and for fancier ones, you can easily find it in a bakery or … Continue reading

So far, so good

Third semester in, perhaps it is a good time to reflect 🙂 Coming to Lund has been the most valuable decision I could have made. Many people study abroad but it is most exciting when you study in the right place. There is a reason many people end up calling Lund their home years after studying; there is a way … Continue reading

Learn Swedish for free in Sweden

Though there are not many things you get for cheap, learning Swedish comes free. 😀 Thanks to Swedish for Immigrants (SFI) course provided by Lunds Kommun, now I can understand and speak my initial words in Swedish. If you are a master’s student for more than a year, the Swedish government offers free SFI courses to learn Swedish. This gives … Continue reading
