The communication with the partner university was good. I got two contacts that helped me with a lot of questions about the paperwork. It is hard to figure out what papers that need to be done when and who that is supposed to sign what, but in the end it all works out. I would say that the partner university was better about helping me than Jönköping university since the question gets directly to the right person.
I shared an apartment in CBD, central business district, with three other girls from JU. It is very hard to find apartments. Pair up with other student from your uni! There are a lot of facebook groups, such as “Svenskar i Melbourne”, that can help you with tips for accommodation. It is very expensive to live in Melbourne and that is another reason to why pairing up with someone makes it easier and more affordable. The apartment I lived in was a very small two bedroom apartment, but it works when it is just for a couple of months.
