Hi! My name is Yujin and I'm the student ambassador for the Master's programme in Service Management, Sustainable Service Management. I am happy to answer any questions you might have about the programme, courses, student life, and life in Lund and Sweden via the Unibuddy Platform, where you can chat with me (see below). Please note that I cannot answer questions about the application process, scholarships, or residence permits.
Why did you choose Lund University?
"Since I study sustainability management, I looked for schools with the keyword 'sustainability'. Also, sustainability rankings have recently been published and Lund University has been highly ranked. There was no reason not to choose Lund since it's an international school which provides a 100% English-taught programme."
What are your first impressions of your programme? Does it meet your expectations?
"My first impression was that my programme is really international. There are about 20 students in my specialisation, and each student has had really different experiences around the world. The first month I was busy learning about everything new. It's only been two months, so it's hard to see if it meets my expectations yet, but it certainly met my goal of studying in English with multinational students."
What have been the highlights of your first months in Lund?
"The first month was a series of nice weather and events at the end of summer. The school prepares many fun events for new students, so I hope you take part. Other than that, I found my favourite park in Lund. I think it was amazing to experience a hectic first month."
What do you think of the teaching style in Sweden?
"I can say that the Swedish teaching style focuses on freedom and responsibility. The answer is not just given so you have to work hard to find a solution that leads you to the right answer. Although this is probably very different from the way you've been previously taught, there is a way to make sure you succeed, so don't worry."
How international is your programme?
"My favourite thing about my programme is that my classmates are international. I am very interested in that part because everyone has different life experiences that make us handle things and understand certain issues in different ways. I think this experience will be useful for my future career."
What are you most looking forward to in your programme?
"I am looking forward to learning about sustainability in various fields. In our programme, professors from other faculties and various fields often give lectures on sustainability. I am eager to learn more about each one and decide which field to focus on."
Stay tuned! A more comprehensive testimonial from this student will be published once they have completed their first semester at Lund and have more insights to share about their programme.
