I had a very nice time studying at DU. Since I was still in my home country had been in contact with the university and felt supported by them in terms of getting accommodation and finding friends around Borlänge. Regarding the education itself, I enjoyed more some courses than others, but I still think I've learned a lot. Professors are well-...
I was really glad for the opportunity to study in Dalarna. I had very pleasant experience with the administrative staff, lecturing team and students generally. The support and warm disposition from everyone towards international students was very satisfying. I would suggest more programs be included to attract more international students.
Really over passed my expectations. It changed my life completely. Totally recommended
