– Being somewhere that specialised in medical humanities felt really important in the creation of my project. Alice appreciated her mentor, Sofia Morberg Jämterud, for shaping her project and the valuable interactions with researchers in similar fields. She also found inspiration in hearing about other researchers' projects.
New insights and experiencesJean-Pierre Roux's research focuses on the complex relationship between humans and technology in the realm of public policing. His experience at Linköping University allowed him to explore different perspectives and methodologies.
– The culture here is great because people take lunch breaks and fikas and are happy to speak to you. I attended seminars and spoke to people at different levels who are grappling with similar questions, says Jean-Pierre. He acknowledges the positive influence of LiU's environment and aims to integrate those lessons into his research back in Glasgow.
Supportive atmosphereThe welcoming and supportive atmosphere at Linköping University played a significant role in the students' experiences.
– Linköping University is a beautiful place and feels very supportive. It's a place that's very generative of ideas and encouraging, Alice says. Jean-Pierre echoes this sentiment, expressing his gratitude for the friendly and receptive nature of the people he encountered during his visit.
