New beginnings!

Wrapping up the academic year and for me, wrapping up my academic career (for now) has been a bittersweet journey. The corridors have started getting emptier and graduation halls are filling up. It all seems slightly disheartening but equally exciting. This past weekend I moved from my precious room in the centre to an area in the north. My travelling … Continue reading

The other side of me

The first year as a student in Lund, that’s all I was- a student. However, in the past year, I have adopted a new character. A student entrepreneur.

from student to staff

Amongst many things, the masters’ thesis period will accelerate the transition from student to professional. Across many disciplines, Masters is the final “student” stage.

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

Topic Selection Tips

  “An average idea well-executed is much better than a brilliant idea executed badly”—James Hayton Three weeks into the autumn semester and you can feel the difference compared to last years’ first few weeks.

LT..Who??

  When I was told Lund is a campus city I didn’t know what to expect coming from a university that had clearly defined boundaries for campuses. The faculties at Lund almost spill over into the city, you find yourself walking right into various schools and faculties.

Field trip

Study visits have always been my favorite part in the courses. The ability to connect between the theory part and what really happens in the real world, thus comprehend better what you study. Also it is nice to get out of class of course ;). Last year, during the urban water course we had the chance of two field trips, … Continue reading
