- I wish I had information concerning the schedule before I arrived at Chalmers.» (2)
- Chalmers should provide housing for students like the GU do!» (3)
- The biggest problem bevor coming to sweden was to find a accommondation. More information about how to find one would be good.» (3)
- Guidance in housing could be better arranged and caused a lot of stress. Beside, information regarding studyprogramme should be better. Firstly, the invites for welcome days of studies were difficult to find and I didn"t get all of them. Also course information should be better, so problems in the program can be addressed earlier. » (3)
- the code for applying to a sgs room was wrong, so i couldnt get a accomodation there. the reason was that the document from a recent year was send to us students.» (3)

- I didn"t find the welcome activities from CIRC very appealing. Divding the students into Phadder groups might be a good idea but the way it was put into practice was not the best. Also, I don"t think my Phadder did his part very well.» (2)
- A pity that you are separated from the normal students» (3)
- Not so many activities in the first week. And the activities of the other weeks had very few places and it was difficult to take part to them. It is a shame because some of them were quite good. The phadder group idea was nice. » (3)

- Circ does a good job» (4)
- It was really nice that we had a phadder group and that certain activities were organized. This is really valuable. We could not join the sauna party and train party because there were way too less tickets. I think it would be better if they organize these activities for everyone. » (4)
- The phadder groups could be assembled beter and search more alike people for the group.» (4)
- Arrival day at the airport could also be good on the Tuesday if we don"t manage to get a flight on monnday?» (4)
- A pity, that international students are separated from the regular students» (4)
- A bit expensive at the end of the month. Some prices were compare to what we did.» (4)
- They welcoming day was useful, but on some aspects to extensive. For example, too much information on alcohol. The activities from CIRC were good and fun. Only the limited amount of spots were a problem. Also i was a bit unlucky with my group. Mostly Asians, that tended to go there own way immediately after the tour. So, basically the group was narrowed down to 5 a 6 people rapidly.» (4)
- When people came it was really nice, but lots of people did not show up to some of the activities and the communication was very chaotic.» (4)
- Thank you very much for all the welcoming activities. The integration was simplified by that.» (5)
- CIRC is doing a very good job.» (5)
- Not enough tickets to different activities » (5)

- Depends on the field of study» (Maybe)
- I would recommend Chalmers but not the courses I took » (Maybe)
- Depends on what the exactly want to study. From my specific Master, i found out it isn"t very suitable. The course fitting in the overall program are limited. If problems, as in my case, occur course outside the master scope should be chosen. However, if suitable i would definitely recommend it. » (Maybe)

12. Do you have any other comments or suggestions?

- I"ve had a very nice semester at Chalmers »
- A better access to the Chalmers societies is needed (Where is lot of societies sports, culture but there are to find) »
- Studying took too much of my time. My main goal was to have fun, meet people, and visit places. Instead, I was studying all day & all night. I admit I had 3 courses, but I felt it too serious considering that I"m "just" an exchange student.»
- French people would be glad if you would offer desserts at the kårrestaurangen.»
- Keep in this way!!!»
- Good education in a very good atmosphere and environment for studying.»
- Better access to Chalmers society»
- More free activities after the 1st week»
- Be very clear with the course information. Had serious problems due overlap of courses and a course that suddenly wasn"t open for exchange students. Due my free Master program, i needed permission for everything. So this caused a lot of unnecessary stress. So be very clear with the information and stick with it. For example don"t close a course for exchange students a week before it starts. That"s ridiculous.»
- Screen students to make sure their qualifications are sufficient. »
