What´s it like studying at Luleå University of Technology?

It is a great opportunity to study at the university. LTU is a great combination of beautiful and close-knit student life, cultural and outdoor experiences and good and rewarding teaching.

What do You think of the city of Luleå?

I really enjoy working in Luleå. It´s is small and cozy town providing everything imaginable needed - everything from shopping to dining and nightlife.

What are your future plans after completed studies?

After his studies it will be to seek employment in Sweden and perhaps also in Germany, when I was an exchange student in Munich for a year and now speaks fluent German.

Do you have any advice for future students?

Personally, I was convinced that I would be studying in Lund until the application period, then I took a chance and moved to Luleå. A choice that I do not at all regret. My personal tip I often give applicant students is to prioritize according to the following list:

  • Education - Weed out the courses you are interested in. Stick to a low number, type 2-3st.
  • Points - Weed out all the universities that have exorbitant admission points for your rating, taking also into account the Scholastic Aptitude Test.
  • City - Some prefer large cities than small towns, while others want proximity to various activities and nature.
  • Universities - Now you should not have too many universities still .. Prioritize remaining universities in the hierarchy depending on the qualities that you deem important. Search for the first 3 in your list.

Keep your fingers crossed - I believe that you can succeed!
