Studyportals International Student Satisfaction Awards 2016 – Sweden


Also this year, many students have reviewed their experiences of studying at a different university. Based on these reviews, Studyportals has created the International Student Satisfaction Awards. These awards are based on thousands of reviews and opinions from international students in Europe.

Many students that went to study in Sweden have shared their experience. A total of 386 students left a review of their experience in Sweden, with an overall satisfaction grade of 9.0, ranking 7th in this year’s award session! 28 different schools have been reviewed, of which 6 universities are awarded. A university is eligible for an award when having an average student satisfaction of at least 8 out of 10 based on a minimum of 20 reviews.

Unlike university rankings, Studyportals’ International Student Satisfaction Awards are based on thousands of reviews and opinions from international students in Europe. We created three award categories to distinguish between levels of satisfaction:

  • Award for Very Good International Student Satisfaction: at least 8.0 out of 10
  • Award for Excellent International Student Satisfaction: between 9.0 and 9.4 out of 10
  • Award for Outstanding International Student Satisfaction: at least 9.5 out of 10

6 Swedish universities received an award:

Reviews Score Award
Lund University 31 9.5+ Outstanding
KTH Royal Institute of Technology 29 9+ Excellent
Linköping University 60 9+ Excellent
Linnaeus University 41 9+ Excellent
University of Gothenburg 28 9+ Excellent
Stockholm University 36 8+ Very good

What international students said about studying in Sweden:

Sweden is awesome! Starting from the landscape and nature, which was a great bonus for my study period, Swedes are incredibly open minded and warm-hearted, and always ready to help anyone.
