I applied to University West because I enjoyed studying here four years ago, during an exchange programme. I loved how I could take fewer courses at the same time which gave me the chance to dig deeper into the topics that were being discussed.
This programme is unique in the way that it assists in connecting students with internships during their second year. I picked this programme because I knew it would prepare me for a job after I graduated.
So far with the coronavirus we have not been able to do too much... But my favorite part is the discussions with my classmates. They come from all over the world which helps me open up my perspective even more on varying issues. They’ve helped me with my communication and listening skills which are valuable tools to take with me outside of university.
So far I haven’t been able to take part in many activities with the university due to the coronavirus. My favorite part though has been the “Inslussningen”, or the two welcome weeks at the beginning of the school year, where I was able to meet the Swedish and International students. Everyone was so friendly!
This term I have been able to meet up with more international students which has been really fun. We’ve had international lunches and hikes that have helped me make more friends.
I love to bake and cook new recipes. Especially being in a new country I have been learning about a bunch of new recipes. I also love walking down to the lochs with friends and being very close to nature. You might even catch me down at the Strandgatan Cafe having a fika with a kanelbulle!
I hope to find a job in Sweden after I graduate and become fluent in Swedish.
The studies have provided me with professional connections that I can rely on. Also, most importantly, the university has given me the opportunity to meet people from around the globe.
