Winter 2015 - Exchange Program

Sweden – University of Lund
Lund is a vibrant student city in the southern part of Sweden. It's the perfect exchange location if you want to experience the Scandinavian culture. In Lund, there's sittnings (dinner parties with songs), nations (student clubs), and fika (coffee breaks). 

Do you remember all new experiences that you had when you started university? The level of excitement during exchange is on par with that. You learn to adapt and make new friends from all over the world very quickly.
