- I am working on a project» (?)
- The work has been relatively easy and not to the level I am used to at my home university. However everything has been very well organised.» (3)
- Time consuming assignments» (3)
- I enjoyed them, and they were very interesting, but I do not know how can I compare them to any others. Thi squestion does not make sense to me» (3)
- I"ve got the impression that the level of education in general was lower than I"m used to. There was a lot less to study, especially for course that are supposed to be for 7.5 credits.» (3)
- All the work are of Masters level here while we are on undergraduate level back home so some of the assignments may be a bit tough to complete.» (3)
- On my last course, Architectural Competitions, it would have been nice to have more lectures and tutorials for our project. » (3)
- in the first period, i had very good courses, but in the second period, i had very bad courses» (3)
- Complicated/Non linear lectures followed by unexplained home task. I found that there is no much transition of information between lecturer and student and that the courses are mainly based on self study (so the lecture become less effective and meaningless).» (3)
- It does not really fit my master at home, but the courses where taught rather well.» (3)
- Very nice study climate, nice professors and nice facilities. Unfortunately not a very high level of education and bad grading system (just 3 grades). Sometimes chaos in the organization and it is often not clear how the different parts of a course play together in terms of overall grading. » (3)
- One really good course, one good and a interessting course with the worst lecture ever.» (3)
- It is a different kind of studying from that at my home university and I liked the variation.» (4)

- I really liked the courses here, though it was very much work load and sometimes very stressful.» (4)
- Generally the teacher-student relationship is very good, there is a lot of support. Some courses in the Master program should go a little more into depth.» (4)
- It"s great that there"s plenty of project work. However, i think it is a bit too easy to gain credits at Chalmers.» (4)
- mycket bra....» (5)
