Prospective master's students visited Master's Fair on campus

”I came to Sweden this summer and now I’m interested in doing a master’s degree here. There seems to be so many good things at Stockholm University in terms of for instance student support. Apparently you can get writing support in English”, Alicia Kurimska said when visiting Stockholm University’s Master’s Fair on campus on 20 November.

She comes from the US but has a sister who is based in Stockholm and has studied at Stockholm University.
”I did my bachelor’s degree in History back home in California. Now I am trying to make up my mind between different subjects for my master; I am torn between International Relations and Writing. Maybe Global Media Studies would be something for me.”

Student fair where visitors could meet staff

In order to find out more about the programmes available and their respective entry requirements, Alicia Kurimska visited the student fair in Södra huset where international admissions officers and staff from Stockholm University’s different departments were ready to answer questions and provide the visitors with study information. 
The English writing support that Alicia Kurimska had heard of was represented by staff from the Academic Writing Service.

"A good way to get into the job market"

Other visitors included the couple Nuthana and Krishna Nadella from India. They attended the event as Krishna Nadella wanted to learn more about applying to a master’s programme in Computer and Systems Sciences. 
”I already have a master’s degree within that subject area but I think that doing a master’s degree here would be a good way to get into the Swedish job market”, he said.
The couple moved to Sweden a year ago as Nuthana Nadella was offered a position in Stockholm.

Programme presentations and campus tours

Stockholms University’s Master’s Fair on campus was organised in order to give all prospective master’s students a chance to visit the university and find out more about the master’s programmes taught in English. The event included a welcome seminar, a student fair and mingle, programme presentations and campus tours.
