"My professor had recommended Stockholm University as it is the only environmental science programme that covers both social and natural sciences. Additionally, at the Resilience Centre there is a good mix of academics and non-academics, which offers an interesting studying environment and unique research opportunities."

"Then of course you get to live and study in Stockholm, which is pretty much the perfect city. It’s a capital, and has the excitement that comes with that, but it’s also a quaint town in the country, with lakes and fantastic scenery on the doorstep."

"The only thing to be aware of is that housing can be a bit of an issue, but once you sort that out you are bound to have a great time while getting a great education."
