- Perfect study tour ever!» (Great extent)
- Study trips are the most succesful way to learn, and to remember for the rest of my life. I think they are excellent ways of getting better knowledge of the subject» (Great extent)

7. What do you think about the organisation and visits of the study tour?

- Well organized. It would have been good to have more guided visits. Many of the visits were on our own.»
- Good but there should have been a smaller group or more teachers, then we could have learned more»
- Good organization. Though a lot of repetition for those who have studied at Chalmers before. But that probably has to do with the fact that we only visit Copenhagen on our study trips.»
- It was great, nicely planned and interesting visits!»
- Very well organised! Such great visits.»
- Real experience of Architectures»
- I can feel the space and dimension of the architectures actually beyond the books, that"s meaningful.»
- I thought it was great. It was clear and we managed to see a lot and a lot of different buildings which was good.»
- Really nice!»
- Realy nice. the first 2 day a few visits and too much journer. Copenhagen visit well organezed.»
- I think all the visits were great, but maybe we cuold lengthen days and so have more visits and get more profit af the trip »
- Perfect choice of objects we were visiting. Great opportunity to experience architecture on other way then typical school study. Some difficulties with breakfasts organisation and bed sheets issue.»
- Really well organised. Well balanced timing between travelling and site visits. One of the best organised and interesting trips I have attended.»
- Well organized, great visits.»
- Very good! Very organized and it was fun!»
- I think the organisation and the visits were terrific!»
- great tour »
- Excelent, could be lesa hectical maybe..»
- We could have seen more in that time, there was much spare time. I would like to have had more information about the buildings we visited.»
- Good organisation. I can only ask for more comments from the teacher while we were driven.»
- well chosen projects, and even though we didn"t have many guided tours i learned a lot because Michael had a lot of knowledge»
- good organisation, good visits. schedule was a bit too packed, a bit more free time would have been great.»
- a little more time in Aarhus would have been nice but otherwise everything was well planned»
- Really good trip. Even more description during the way could have been good. And, easier for everyone to hear in the bus than outside so talk in there instead!»
- I think it was really good, sometimes it felt a little bit to short visits. Too stressed to both sketch and take photos. »
- did not go to denmark.»
- Great! But most of the swedish students have already been to most of the objects in denmark (more than ones during the bachelor), so it can be good to talk to the other teachers that has traveled to denmark with students before! Great though to go inside some of the projects that we only seen from the outside before.»
- Really well organized. Good that we had pretty few study visits, but with more time spent on each. Could have been some more time at Louisiana, too much to see in to less time!»
- not to much waiting and own responsibility - good!»
- I think it is great, and it is very diffcult to the teachers regarding the great organisation.»
- Really good! »

- I would have wanted 1 or 2 literature seminars to learn more from the literature. Maybe one more general seminar after the first week, and one seminar where the student can read more about some specific author/topic. » (Some extent)
- It was impossible for me to read the whole compendium. Maybe a smaller selection of texts and themes could have been better.» (Some extent)
- the literature was too much and too detailed. it was not possible to read it all. It would be more helpful and interesting to give a shorter and more concentrated overview in the compulsory literature, and mention more detailed literature as optional readings. » (Some extent)
- A really good ambition to handle out texts for every lecture, but in the end of the course it was really hard to find time for the reading. » (Some extent)
- Its a pity, but I wish I would have read it more, I dident read it all. But the ones I read I appreciated. Maybe it would be nice with some kind of checkup on this part, too see if the students actually reads all the material.» (Large extent)
- It became a bit confusing with all the articles we got. If we could get them all at once, in a binder, it would have Been easier. Would be happy to pay for that! But good selection!» (Large extent)

- it would be better to uploard slides after lectures. » (Rather well)
- Had no problems, but was not easy to find either.» (Rather well)
- Maybe some more literature could be put on the homepage instead of it being printed. Feel like a waste of paper to print so much, better to read on the computer and print if you want to.» (Very well)
- Very Clear arranged. But I wish I can download all the PPT from the course. That will be perfect!» (Very well)
- It would have been easier to buy a whole booklet with the texts. In the end there were so many texts lying everwhere that I didn"t understand which one was supposed to be read when.» (Very well)

- There was a lot to read between the lectures and sometime i didn"t manage to read it all» (Adequate)
- It"s good to have time to read and to have lectures but there could had been other things, what I really missed was a seminares to just sit down and discuss.

- But very much to read.» (Adequate)
- If I tried to read all the text that meant that I had no time at all to write the paper since there was no scheduled time to write at all. I think you should consider what the main task of the course is, whether it be reading the handouts or writing the paper.» (High)

- The lectures, the study tour. The written thesis. »
- The study trip and all the good lectures. »
- The good lectures, Lars Trädgård, Claes Caldenby and Mari was good for example. »
- I think the mode of inviting different teachers from different Nordic countries to do the lectures is pretty good.»
- Study tour and all nice literature! They are fun!»
- Study trip»
- Lecturers were extremely interesting and managed to give a really great overview of the subject, considering the intensive and relatively short time constraints.»
- Mari Hvattum - give her a full day! »
- The Study trip.»
- lectures from guest lecturers study materials for the lectures»
- Study tour »
- A study trip. The readings.»
- The study trip.»
- Mari Hvattum"s lecture»
- study trip, discussions and critical lectures»
- study trip, best way to really understand nordic architecture»
- Study trip»
- Studytour, maybe to another country though. And the lecture about swedish society!»
- Study tour and guest speakers, they were very good»
- The study trip. Mari Hvattums lecture was really good.»
- the studytrip was excellent»
- Evething is good.»
- The different articles as readings, different lecturers w different themes. A study tour!»

18. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Make sure that the ones holding lectures are comfortable with speaking English, if not the lecture will not be worth the time.»
- Evaluation of your work. »
- More work, more smaller group discussions.»
- Maybe some of the litterature. »
- Have a seminar and give more comments on hte texts, and let us read each others texts. It doesn"t give so much will to write a text that noone will comment on or even read. »
- Maybe the time for study trip could be more longer to see more architectures.»
- I really want to download PPTs from the course.»
- Anything»
- Plan the trip so that every body can join it. »
- Add seminars for the literature!»
- Maybe a seminar about the literature.»
- overall, the flow of lectures were perfect but, it would be better to learn earlier about the social environment of the nordic countries. »
- Reading that much od papers»
- It is difficult to discuss those questions in a big group (100 students) and in English even. That is why I think the discussions in class did not work so well. It would have been a more interesting discussion if we would have been divided into smaller groups of about ten students...»
- The amount of text. More smaller groups»
- making sure all the lecturers keep their timed schedule, specially if the lecture is held after 4 in the afternoon.»
- less literature.»
- Less litterture and more practical "workshops" maybe. »
- Too much literature regarding the Swedish architectural history and welfare architecture, becomes repetitive »
- Some dedicated time for the final paper. Now we were supposed to write the paper and read for the leactures at the same time. At least for me it was impossible.»
- finnish lecture and KF leture were a bit boring, maybe they could be more interactive»
- Discussion in a large scale will be better, because we can get more information from other students. »
- The coordination of the articles, other way of discussing them.»

19. Additional comments

- Maybe add some text seminars between students.»
- It was really interesting, I think we need more history in the school of architecture!»
- I think this course gives me the chance to know what Nordic Architectures is and let me think what I can absorb from it in my future design.»
- Thank your very much for the course! I really like it a lot!»
- Very bad that the study trip had a limit of people since it was the only interesting and noteworthy session of the course. And then the Gbg guide assignment as a punishment task was very badly organized and thought out. It didn"t contribute at all to the course. The course is probably interesting for the exchange students but for the ppl of Chalmers the course is a badly composed recap and repetition of the previous architectural theory and history courses. As it was this year I cannot see why it is mandatory. I did not enjoy it and didn"t learn much new. I would sadly call it a waste of my time. »
- Really enjoyed the course. Thank you »
- I understood by some of the exchange students that they had a hard time following Lisa Brunnströms lecture. Too bad since it was a really interesting lecture, an eye-opener that made a lot fall into place.»
- For international students as me, this course was a good opportunity to learn about architecture of the nordic countries. But I think it could be shorter and more concentrated. I would also have liked to learn a bit about traditional vernacular architecture and building tecniques in the nordic countries, for example about building with wood. »
- Quite unclear goals regarding the final essay»
