How did you hear about the School of Business, Economics and Law?
-When I decided to go on exchange, I had a look at the list with all the different countries and universities we could go to. Handelshögskolan was one of those universities. The first thing I looked at was the time schedule, and whether the semester matched with my home university. Many countries and universities were therefore not an option for me, because the time schedule did not match. After this selection, many Scandinavian universities were left. I had only been to Scandinavia once before, so for me it was the perfect opportunity to explore more of Scandinavia. There were many reasons why I decided to choose Gothenburg. The first reason is the fact that Gothenburg is a port city, which makes any city absolutely beautiful and creates a great atmosphere. Secondly, the university of Gothenburg could provide housing, which was also quite important to me. Thirdly, the supply of courses was large, there were many interesting courses you could choose from. And lastly, from Gothenburg it is really easy to travel to other countries, like Denmark and Norway!
How was the introduction and the start of your semester here?
-In my opinion, the introduction and the start of my semester was great. Handelshögskolan organized many activities for incoming exchange students. However, before the introduction period, I met many students from other faculties. Their faculties organized an introduction week all together, however, Handelshögskolan had their own separate introduction week. For me this was a bit unfortunate. I would have liked it a bit more to experience the introduction period with all the different faculties. However, it was still nice that Handelshögskolan organized so many activities for their students, and it was a great opportunity to meet students from the same faculty!
