The main entrance and some new statue they have put up. I think the interpretation should be that the students at the university get knowledge which they can use as stilts to reach higher. Maybe it can also explain why so many people flunk out, or should I say, fall down. He he
Emil & Emilia, the student couple who symbolizes the students at the university. Behind is the new Student Union building.
This is the Fysicum building ...SHUDDER... , where they keep the students who study Physics Engineering. As you can see, people at my universty love brick buildings. One day they will probably cut off my head and put it on display with the rest of the guys there on the top. Nobel, Celsius, Sievert, Ångström, Jiabao...
Outside the office for the international students this painting is hung on the wall. It is probably a gift from the Chinese exchange students. On the side of the painting it says "All Chinese exchange-students in Gothenburgh, Chalmers University of Technology". Below are a whole bunch of names written. I don't know who the guy is in the picture, possible Mr. Chalmers, the founder of the university. He is no Chinese atleast.
Nice gesture. Then again, Sweden is giving them an education for free.
The cost of the International Master's Programmes is provided by a grant from the Swedish Government. Consequently, there are at present no direct tuition fees. However, students face the full cost of living during their studies in Sweden (housing, food, books, etc.), usually around USD 1,000 a month.Interested to study in Sweden? Check out www.studyinsweden.se. Should provide you with the details. Hurry while it still is free, that will most likely change soon. I think many of the Chinese students cook their own food and share apartments, probably bringing down the living expenses a lot.
