The international students starting autumn 2016 all have diverse reasons for choosing Stockholm University, but the hopes for their time here are near universal. Many chose Stockholm University for the strength of its academics and the opportunities afforded by a larger institution. Others were drawn by the welcoming and open atmosphere, as well as the opportunities to enjoy the natural surroundings of the campus and the wider Stockholm region. They also embrace the opportunity to create new friendships and connections in a diverse and challenging intellectual environment.
