Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

Luleå is renowned for the way it treats exchange students, there are several events/trips organized throughout the year, all of which are free! . The quality of teaching, guidance by teachers and most importantly, the multitude of classes from different spheres (Psychology, Entrepreneurship, etc.) are what prepared me intellectually for the obstacles ahead.

Luleå review
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

It was a very pleasant stay! The swedish students know how to treat the exchanges students, from the beginning to the end of their semester (with diners, parties, trips...). The university itself is used to have foreign students and every swedish people (students, professors or the bus driver...) that I met can speak english! The courses that I chose were all in english...
