WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO GO ON EXCHANGE?
I wanted to live and learn in a different culture. The good thing about coming to JIBS is that there are a lot of international students, which means the exchange of culture isn’t just with Swedish people, but with those from many other countries as well.
WHAT IS THE BEST THING ABOUT JÖNKÖPING UNIVERSITY?
Studying at JIBS has been the best experience! It’s culturally diverse there. I had a wide range of courses to choose from as so many are delivered in English. The staff there is very supportive and friendly to international students, and the lecturers are so enthusiastic and always encourage students to develop critical thinking.
WOULD YOU RECOMMEND EXCHANGE STUDIES TO OTHER STUDENTS?
Yes, definitely. Besides the many studying options, the university provides excellent services to support international students in various stages of the exchange application, especially the pre-departure process. Jönköping University also offers an accommodation service, so international students like me don’t have to worry about finding a place to live. So, it was pretty easy and thanks to JU I didn’t worry so much before coming here or during my stay. I had a wonderful time here in Sweden!
