What I really like about having my masters in Sweden is the amount of opportunities I get as a student. All the time there are many events taking place in Linköping and around the country. As a student you can participate in different seminars, workshops, open lectures and conferences.
At LiU especially, every week you can find a new and interesting issue being discussed and inviting students to engage in. Because Sweden is a very international setting and everybody speaks English very naturally, a great number of events are hold in English and you won’t have problem finding something that is appealing to you.
On the other hand, professors also seek help among students to organize such events and conferences are always open for interested volunteers. Those are great experiences because you can attend a big event without paying fee, be present in important international discussions and meet all types of people. Be aware of everything Linköping can offer you as much inside as outside the classroom. A good tip is to always take a look in the posters and ads sticked on the walls around the campus (the same walls also announce a lot of parties, but this is an topic for another post ).
