I am sure you have many questions about your future studies. Is this really for me? Will I succeed? We are absolutely convinced that you will succeed, even though the task may occasionally seem to be an uphill struggle. But as long as you invest enough time in your studies, there is absolutely no doubt that you will succeed. There are many people here at the university that can testify to that, including me.
As Vice-Chancellor I am extremely proud about allowing students to directly benefit from the university’s well-established network of external contacts, which has been built up by our researchers and teachers who collaborate with businesses, organisations and authorities worldwide. Many of the courses you will be reading give you a foretaste of professional life and provide you with contacts with potential employers even as you study.
For sports and outdoor enthusiasts, Luleå University of Technology is definitely the right choice. The great outdoors are located right on the campus doorstep and we can guarantee winters with plenty of snow. There is nothing to stop you from hitting the slopes or ski-track after your lecture. Package skiing trips both for beginners and seasoned skiers are arranged all season long. In one weekend you can visit all the classic ski resorts such as Riksgränsen, Björkliden and Abisko. So don’t forget your down jacket when you pack your suitcase.
Once again, I would like to wish you a warm welcome to LTU – a centre of world-class teaching and research.
