Check out this interview on Montclair State University study abroad student, Morgan Hawkes, HERE!
Kristianstad University, located in southern Sweden, was founded in 1977, but in this region the University can trace their roots way back for teacher's training (1835), nurses (1893) and engineers (1912).
The students are their most valuable resource. On campus you will find students from all walks of life and from all over the world. They welcome around 100 international students each semester to mix with 7000 Swedish students.
Their campus is created from the idea that you, as a student, shall have access to modern information technology, inspiring meeting places, and good service. They offer a highly qualified faculty in a friendly atmosphere. They also have a large number of computers with 24 hours access at your disposal.
