We asked what our students thought of their studies at Mid Sweden University, this is what they answered.
Anne-Sofie, Bachelor in Ecotechnology
"I knew I had a passion for environmental science, and Sweden is the best place to study it as caring for the environment is ingrained in the Swedish life-style. I also wanted to study environmental science somewhere with beautiful and easily accessible nature, while also having a lively downtown. Östersund was the perfect solution for this as it is surrounded by some of the most charming nature in the world, with mountains, lakes and more while also having an active downtown with various restaurants and boutiques.
I experienced several positive culture shocks when I started studying at Mid Sweden
University. The biggest difference was referring to professors by their first name. I
learned to truly appreciate this as a great show of equality between professors and
students. Another culture shock I experienced at Mid Sweden University was the emphasis on students’ well-being and avoiding stress.
There are numerous benefits of studying abroad at Mid Sweden University that I am thankful for. I have experienced so many new things I could not experience in other places, like seeing the midnight sun, northern lights, ice skating on a frozen lake and skiing between classes!"
