We have enjoyed a year full of activities such as workshops, food fairs and excursions among other things.  The events we arrange may have a broad range but they share the common ground of offering the chance of meeting people from all over the world with the hope of enriching your time as students at Stockholm University and give you a sense of cohesion.

Board games are like a “trap”, once you jump in you will never escape. Why it is a “trap”? When you fall in love with board games, you cannot stop to buying them, BUT everyone knows the price in Sweden, those board games will rob your wallet. I am the victim sufferer, so DO NOT SPEND TOO MUCH ON THEM!   Let us come back to the games. Read more

Since I come from south Italy, I´m used to living with the sun (we do have something like 300 sunny days per year!) and it's part of my everyday life, my culture and my heritage, too. What surprised me was to understand how I used to take the good weather for granted and I've never ever appreciated a sunny day in my whole life as much as I'm doing now, during my stay in Sweden.

After few days of Swede-watching, I got it: the clothes. That was the matter. It looked like all the Swedish people bought their attire in the same shop, which can easily be, due to the prodigious number of H&M spread around Stockholm. Apparently, they love wearing black garments. But why? Certainly, black is easy to match with everything, and draws a nice silhouette on you. Read more

Since I was little I wanted to have a hot air balloon and travel around the world. Now that I have grown up (a bit) I’ve learnt that getting a hot air balloon might be difficult, but travelling not. You can travel anywhere you want without being rich, just with a positive attitude and willingness to explore and learn. Read more

Scandinavia has truly so much to offer and I don’t blame you for wanting to explore it as much as you can, but there are other trips off the beaten path you can make that may turn out being just as fun, such as going to one of the Baltic states. Read more

How can you do that, you might wonder? It’s obvious! You just need to become a member of a student organization at first. And whenever you feel like you want a challenging activity, become an active member of the association.  At least that’s the key to breath-taking experience I arranged to myself. Read more

The length of Easter holiday depends on the department you belong to and which courses are chosen. Normally, there are 3 to 5 days of holiday. Fortunately, I had 7 days in which I had decided to explore a new area-Germany. There were a lot of famous cities where I was eager to visit. However, since the duration of holiday, I had to make a clear plan. Read more

Since I'm Dutch, cycling comes natural to me (I even brought my own bike here from The Netherlands). Cycling is good for you, good for the environment and good for your wallet; it is cheaper than public transport. But, since not everyone is as used to cycling as I am, here are some do's and don'ts.   Where to get a bike? Read more

Among the continuous work for the international unit is to offer the international students of Stockholm University different activities and events.  However we do not do this all by ourselves but are being helped by student representatives, ambassadors that are chosen in the beginning of every semester. The ambees are an essential part of our activity planning. Read more
