Agyat: In Gothenburg you can be whoever you are

“People have been very friendly, they often want to take the time to talk to me. It’s not like being in a big chaotic city, it’s a cosy city – you feel the warmth.”

Agyat explains that he chose University of Gothenburg and Sahlgrenska Academy for their reputation as academic institutes. It also becomes clear that he is fond of the city, which he thinks is neither too small nor too large – but lagom (a Swedish word for just right).

Favourite local hang out is Andra Långgatan 

“On one hand, you can walk almost everywhere in Gothenburg. On the other it’s a big city with a very international feel. One of my favourite areas is Andra Långgatan, where there are bars and cafés that are often full of international students."

Education is a life changing experience

“It’s not just what you study in a classroom – you’re studying 24 hours a day, by integrating with a new culture. And the university gives you a lot of opportunities to go out and meet local industry, to build your own network. The Swedish system is designed to help you become independent, at every point of the programme there is a connection to the real world and opportunities to integrate with it. Then it’s up to you to choose your direction.”
