Tuition fees for non-EU full-time students

6 Dec

“Tuition fee fallout”?

That’s what it says in the title of this article by The Local!

Less diversity, lower student quality due to fewer applications… If we believe this article, more bad than good is expected?

Time will tell! In any case, one quoted Lund student echoes what we’d concluded in our editorial in the October issue: “I understand why they are introducing the fees, but it’s really sad”…

International Student Barometer 2010

15 Nov

Have your say

Lund University wants to find out what International students think of their time here. This is your chance to let them know.

The International Student Barometer is an independently designed and carried out survey tool used by universities around the world.

You should have received an invitation to participate in your university e-mail account (a good thing to check it regularly, by the way – you can also forward it to another account so you don’t miss any important announcements!) but just in case, you can find it here.

Answers should be in before December 10. Participants could win a 11,000 SEK donation to charity in their name.

New issue is out!

Anti-racism demonstration in Lund

23 Sep

“Inga rasister på våra gator”*

Text and photos by Mark Wong

An anti-racist demonstration took place in Lund this evening at 7pm.  The meeting point was at Stortorget and by 7:30pm the place was all filled up.

Two police cars were in sight and the policemen there were just making sure everything was peaceful and orderly.  Organizers had earlier planned to walk around town while carrying banners expressing their opposition towards racism after the Swedish Democrats party won slightly more than 5% of the seats in the recently concluded elections.

Knock-Knock-Knocking on Sweden’s door

by Philippe-Antoine Charbonneau

This is the kind of things tourists don’t see. But if you live in Lund, you must have noticed it: doors are always locked over here.

Your front door? Fine – to avoid some drunk folks unintentionally going in the wrong room at 3 am, it’s safer. You office door? Of course – to stop students from trying to find the final exam, it’s a good idea.

But what about other doors?

What about the door that is downstairs in my apartment? There is a main door to get in the building from outside which is locked only at night and that’s understandable. But then there’s another door after.

Don’t know why. I just know that’s its always locked and when you have groceries (not from COOP!), it’s not ideal.
