I am studying Human Geography at Högskolan Dalarna in Borlänge, in Sweden.
Within our first two weeks we had ‘The Orientation Week’, which was organised for the Erasmus students. We participated in several programmes, such as visiting the main attractions in Borlänge and Falun, playing guitar hero, sledging or rapid dating. I really enjoyed these activities, because we were getting to know each other better.
My favorite part in the daily routine is ‘Fika time’. Fika means having a break, mostly coffee breaks with friends. We usually accompany it with cookies or cinnamon rolls. This is the best part of the day, if we do not have party at night!
The educational system here is totally differ¬ent from ours in Pannonia, especially as we do not have a fixed timetable. We take part in lessons at a different time every week, but it was hard to get used to it. We learn a subject for no longer than a month and after the last seminar we have the exam. There is no special exam period. I am enjoying my stay because the teachers are very helpful and friendly and I can also say many of the students are very interested in Erasmus students.
