Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

Luleå University of Technology (LTU) is a university with a very good cohesion and it is really easy to get new friends. The facilities is newly renovated and the study atmosphere is good as well. The university is located in northern Sweden, which means that it will be much snow in the winter.
