"SMIO matched my interests perfectly! The courses were planned in a structured way and time was given for both lectures, self-reflections, individual studies and teamwork. The atmosphere was fantastic with individuals of different ages and from different regions of the world".

"The majority of courses in the programme relied on problem-based learning (PBL). This enables students to be innovative and competent graduates. We learned to be independent thinkers, problem-solvers, and good decision-makers. Swedes are very dedicated, organised, and hard-working people. I am eager to live that example in my whole career".

"Moving to Sweden to me was like moving to the future! Here, instructors respect and value students’ input, and this is reflected in the way they teach and interact with students. The combination of having international faculty who are experts in their field and small class sizes meant that we had a lot of opportunities to discuss ideas and have meaningful interactions".
