If there is something that one could unmistakably say about Chalmers, is that they take great care of its students. Ever since the first day I set foot in the university, at the welcoming activity for newcomer master students, we were flooded with all the opportunities and services that are provided to us: from health care and counseling to personalized help to write essays. And this quality is much more present when it concerns international students. For us coming from afar and jumping through a few extra hoops to reach our desired educational destination, Chalmers recognizes our determination and appreciates the value of having a multicultural classroom.
As an additional effort to strengthen the ties with international students, accomplish a more direct contact and being able to provide personalized answers, a new kind of event has been launched under the name Meet and Greet mingles. Unfortunately I could not attend to the first one that was held in October, touching topics like exams, IT services and help in studies. But the second time around, I plan not to miss it:
The theme for the next mingle will be Christmas and Swedish culture, which you could guess is a favorite of mine if you have been reading past posts. Subjects such as activities during the Christmas break, scholarships, medical care and career planning will be discussed in the company of staff from the Student Centre, and the Scholarships, Admissions and Career Services departments. You can also expect some fika (and I’m crossing my fingers for some yummy non-alcoholic glögg).
Göteborg & Co, Fysiken, Akademihälsan and Region Västra Götaland will also be there, so be sure to mark your calendar for December 11 at 11:30-13:00 if you wish to have a chat with them. For more details you can check out the Facebook event here.
Hope to see you there!
