- I luckily found an accomodation before coming here, but it was lots of work and emails and luck. The coordinators were very encouraged to help with little things(!!!), but still the general situation for students to find something is not very good.» (I had arranged accommodation before I came to Chalmers)
- 2 weeks before I arrived» (I had arranged accommodation before I came to Chalmers)
- I was just lucky to find accommodation. It"s really hard as exchange student. » (I had arranged accommodation before I came to Chalmers)
- Although it is very difficult to find it and it is the main drawback in coming to Sweden to study.» (I had arranged accommodation before I came to Chalmers)
- But it was very difficult to find an accomodation. I didn"t get a student accomodation, so I had to find a private flat. I wished that Chalmers supported me better in this phase.» (I had arranged accommodation before I came to Chalmers)
- I started with the search for a room 2 month before I came!» (I had arranged accommodation before I came to Chalmers)
- But very hard in advance, almost not possible.» (I had arranged accommodation before I came to Chalmers)
- I would have liked more information and help about housing. I had luck, but it was very difficult for some people to get where to sleep. Some more help should be provided, or otherwise, if there are not enough student flats in gothemburg, admit less erasmus people.» (I had arranged accommodation before I came to Chalmers)
- I found after 7 visits so it was very stressful...» (Within the first few days)
- it is a shame that chalmers does not help 1-term erasmus students finding accommodation at all. gothenburg university does it and the sgs residences they offer are very good. » (After 1-2 weeks)
- Eventhough more stzudent housing would be nice, specially for students who stay for a semester only, as they have it much harder to find a place.» (After 1-2 weeks)
- I think Chalmers should provide accommodation not only to Erasmus students but also to Nordplus students. » (After 1-2 weeks)
- It is very hard for foreign people to find somethings good here!!» (After 1-2 weeks)
- Chalmers should not give such amount of erasmus grants if they can"t cover properly the acommodation of the students. My first week here was one of the worst situations in my life. New country and no place to stay is a very tough situation.» (After 1-2 weeks)
- to find an accommodation in gothenburg is very hard especially for erasmus students. that problem should be solved soon» (After 2-4 weeks)
- Horrible situation, the statement from Chalmers "there are good chances to get a place over SGS" is not true at all. I registered the first day it was possible and did not get anything.» (After 2-4 weeks)
- As I said before, you should make exachange students aware of the situation in Goteborg about accomodation. You should warn them that nobody will help them when they arrive.» (After 2-4 weeks)
- This is the most absurd part and that is why I don"t know if I can suggest to other people to come to Gothemburg. SGS DO NOT HELP and in fact none of my group find an accomodation there, which is terrible. We found on boplasts, but we had to waste time and money in an expensive hostel. This is an absurd and humiliating situation i cannot stand, even because you end up with a landlord. Plus, Chalmers do not help and keep saying "go to SGS" when they perfectly know it does not work.» (After more than one month)
- It is a problem to find accomodation in Gothenburg. I almost cancelled my exchange (before coming to Gothemburg) because I couldnt find any place to stay. » (After more than one month)

- A lot of work, but I really learnt something.» (Very good)
- Little too theoretical for my taste. » (Good)
- The level of education is good. Good was that many courses include lab works. » (Good)
- - lectures and teachers are very good and widen the perspective of the students - only negativ aspect is the sometimes missing coordination and too many assignments» (Good)
- Difficult to be part of a class when we have only two or three courses.» (Good)
- Most of the courses were very good while one was among the worst I have taken during my studies» (Good)
- specific feedback was given directly to professors» (Satisfactory)
- Some courses had a bit of a low level, some were harder but the explanation by the teachers is not good, they dont explain, but they tell you and this makes the courses even harder» (Satisfactory)
- Satisfactory, but the level of teaching is overall poor and the workload is high. Groupworks fortunately are challenging and well-structured.» (Satisfactory)
- Sometimes chaotic organisation, quite poor exercises, lab work» (Satisfactory)
- The environment (facilities etc) is quite good. (maybe sometimes rooms could be heated more). My impression of the teachers is various. There are really good ones and there are the ones that can barely speak english (pronouncing letters wrong during a math session is quite bad). » (Satisfactory)
- in architecture, it can be surprising to discover the nature of the exercice in a master year. by saying that everything is fabulous, even when there is almost no work done, the student may ask himself no further question…,everything can not be fabulous everytime, but maybe some students can not support the critic and that is the reason why the teaching is like this. otherwise, it"s good.» (Unsatisfactory)

- I like the spirit in the school» (Good)
- Overall it was a pleasent experience. » (Good)
- One bad thing: no courses of swedish offered by Chalmers. I find this very illogical and annoying. Most people can"t afford swedish courses. » (Good)
- It gave me the chance to know better the north. Gothemburg is nice and I liked it - of course it is expensive and everything, but you can find pretty much everything you want.» (Satisfactory)

- Definately!» (Yes)
- But I would definitely tell them to atleast make sure they have a good room, it makes a huge difference in experience» (Yes)
- I would recommend Chalmers without any doubt. It has been a great Erasmus» (Yes)
- but it depends on the field of studies. There are just a few courses for industrial engineering and management which are open for exchange students.» (Yes)
- More for the feeling, less for the content. » (Yes)
- I would probably recommend Gothenburg but, even if Chalmers was overall good, I would probably recommend Gothenburg university to an economics student just for the accommodation problem. » (Maybe)
- Only if they were interested in the North and they are prepared with tons of money to spend. If these two conditions are not met, I wouln"t suggest it at all (plus, there is the aspect of housing, I know my friends all over the world in a student housing or in a private house... :-( ).» (Maybe)
- i"ll tell them that it is maybe not the deepest projects they will do, but it is still very interesting for the life, the people and everything that is around the nordic culture and nature.» (Maybe)
- Acommodation is a big problem, it is way better going to another university that assures acommodation in student housing.» (No)

11. Do you have any other comments?

- Small idea: You could include the interactive map[ http://www.chalmers.se/HyperText/Karta/load-e.html ] into the welcome letter or somewhere, because I really missed something like this the first days of courses...,-)»
- I heard that the corporation with my home university in Germany TU Darmstadt will not be continued. If it"s true, why is this so? It would be very sad! Is it just because chalmers students don"t want to go to Germany in exchange for whatever reason?»
- The assignments take a rather long time to return (I know they are a lot) but having all back/approved before the exam would be nice.»
- Thanks a lot for the great time at chalmers!»
- Thank you.»
- I will thank Chalmers for my erasmus experience. But there is a lot to fix. It is a pity, Chalmers and Gothemburg has so much to offer.»
- too high-school like environment. student"s shouldn"t be patronised like they"re not responsible enough to work on their own. the level of the courses and what is demanded is average at most, it should be a challenge and difficult to get the highest grade (not the case apparently). passing a course with a 3 is so easy that i wonder why some people even bother.»
- Chalmers should find a way to guarantee accommodation to all the students. In my case was really dificult find accommodation. Sometimes it make a student comeback to the home coutry in first weeks»
- It would be very nice to have a Swedish course for beginners for free. (within the Erasmus program)»
- The stay was very attractive»
- Gothenburg is a GREAT city!»
- Good exchange and good courses" quality. »
- there are no wrongs from my critic, it is really not the same as i am used to, here, it is a lighter rythm, but more than chalmers itself, i discovered really nice people and a roughness of nature that helped me answering to several questions that i had about architecture and what i want to do. tack !»
- Except about accomodation, my studies at chalmers were a pleasure.»
- Teachers should be checked for language abilities. »
- There has been a lot of discussion among (foreign) students about the sustainability concept Chalmers (wants to) stand for on the one hand and the food being served with plastic dishes on the other hand. If this is a sustainable solution compared to having a dish washer then you should get this message to the students. Otherwise you should work on a better solution for this exposed part of the university life.»
- I have had an excellent time at Chalmers, and in Gothenburg. I am very sad to leave and hope to be back sometime in the near future.»
