This event is organised by Alumni Swedia and is open to students going to Sweden for studies and to alumni network members.
Alumni Swedia would like to organize a send-off event for the new students who will shortly going to Sweden and start their study in Swedish universities in Autumn semester 2019.
The main purpose of this event is to give a chance to the new students to know more about the life in Sweden that they will soon face and to inspire them on various opportunities that they can have after completed the study. The alumni will share about things they need to know and prepare before leaving to Sweden, from the general ones to the simple life hacks. The alumni will also share about:
1. Their early days in Sweden: how they adapted to Swedish life, the culture shock they experienced, and how they handled it
2. The study years in Sweden: what to expect during the studies, the day-to-day university life, and other activities they can do to make the most out of their time in Sweden
3. The life after study in Sweden: how master study in Sweden improves their career when they get back to Indonesia and opens new possibilities such as the opportunity to work or continue a PhD/doctoral study in Sweden.
