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

Nothing beats the Community at the University. Most students are living within walking distance of the university. It is also close to the the Grocery Market ICA, the gym and of course to all the friends you get to know! Studying at LTU is nice, but it is also challenging and requires you as a student. The courses are high class, and it's up to you how much you want to learn. The teachers are engaged in your learning and answer more than happy to answer questions when you get stuck in the studies.

What do You think of the city of Luleå?

Luleå was a natural choice of study for me as I love the winter season with all the activities it allows. The proximity to the ski trails and slopes associated with proximity to the entertainment and shopping center of Luleå, the combination is hard to beat.

What are your future plans after completed studies?

My goal when I graduated is to get a job with various tasks, great colleagues, and offering exciting new challenges every day. Exactly what I want to work with is still unclear, it is often fortuitous events that opens new, unexpected doors to the job you never thought would be compelling until you've tried them.

Do you have any advice for future students at LTU?

Ensure that early learn the study skills that best suits you, and take their studies seriously. See above all to have fun while studying! Dare to try new things such physical activities, social interaction, or why not get involved in any of the various student unions?
