MS in Bioinformatics (Biology Background) - Batch of 2024

Affordable and the best, best student life and amazing experience.
Tips: Students should know the weightage of their course work and they have to plan accordingly. Also there will be more hindrances and hurdles while you study here in Europe. You need to be prepared for that and you should stay motivated. I would suggest that Europe is the best place to do your master's degree.
Likes (Student Life): I have the best student life here. I met so many international people here and had a wonderful experience. Parties, group discussions, study groups everything here is amazing and mind-blowing. I really like the vibe of the city and the amazing student experience
Dislikes (Internships): Low opportunities for internships here, for my course I either have to go to some other city or I cannot do it remotely. A lot of research opportunities are there but a year of experience is needed for all the jobs and internships here. Getting internships is pretty hard for my course here.

Average University, much better options available.
Tips: Education level is very low as compared with Indian or US education level. I am finding it hard to cope with Swedish education system. Teaching is done by PhD students and not by professors most of the time. Assignment is the only thing you have to do. I am considering to drop out of the University in next semester.
Likes (Public transportation): Public transport is good but very expensive. Buses are well connected with campus and city centre. The only good thing about this city is public transport. During snow, buses run late but it's everywhere. Trains are well on time usually. So public transport is good.
Dislikes (Part time work): There are very less part time jobs. Also if some jobs are available they pay you very less money. On-campus jobs are near to impossible to secure as they always want Swedish speaking candidates. Same with part time jobs no scope for English speaking population.
