1 Exchange Report Spring 2015 Lund University, Sweden Summi Lau BBA (ECON and MGMT)

2 Part 1: Activity Log January I arrived Lund on the official arrival day, 12 th January. There were a few mentors waiting for us at Copenhagen Airport and led us to Lund. When back to Lund, we received a welcome package including lots of useful stuff, such as SIM card. Then we chose to join some orientation activities, for example, hiking in Nature Park, taste of Sweden and a Swedish course for exchange student, SUSA, which taught us some useful and basic Swedish and helped us a lot for our living here. February As the class schedules are different every week, we can always plan some short trips during our exchange. My first trip in Europe was Stockholm, Sweden. It was really cold there. And we lived in my friend s accommodation who was also an exchange student to save some costs. During Lunar New Year, I went to London to find my cousin who is having working holiday and celebrated with her. I also travelled to Oxford, Cambridge and Bath, which are all very beautiful places. At the end of February, I went to Bergen and Oslo in Norway, and took the train and ship connected the two places in order to enjoy the spectacular view of the famous bay there. March One thing you can never miss in Northern Europe is the Northern light. Therefore, my friend and I joined a tour in Levi, Finland to test our luck. Fortunately, we met the Northern light two nights in a roll which was amazing. The tour also included different kinds of activities, like husky safari, reindeer safari. You can also rent skiing materials in the shops there. We had so much fun here. But then was the end of the first half semester. I had to study hard and prepared for the examination. But right after it, my friend and I started our next trip, Hamburg and Berlin in Germany, and Paris in France. Berlin is a memorable city overall as the people and view are both very nice. For Paris, it is a paradise for shopping and the hygiene problem is quite serious. Besides, I had a day trip in Malmo, Sweden too. April Although the second half of the semester just started, I planned three trips this month since my boyfriend came. The first trip includes Luxemburg, Brussels and Bruges in Belgium and Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Luxemburg is a small countries but the castle is awesome. And the atmosphere there is very peaceful. Also, it was our first time to live in an Airbnb host, and the quality was very good. In Belgium, chocolate and waffles are everywhere which can surely gain you some weight. However, the most

3 famous attraction, the peeing child, is really small that you can buy a 1 to 1 figure back home. Amsterdam is a very beautiful city in daytime, where the windmill village and Keukenhof garden can spend you a whole day if you are a nature and flower lover. But you can always smell smoke and drugs here, so be aware at night. The second trip took place in East Europe, Prague in Czech Republics, Vienna in Austria and Budapest in Hungary. Prague is really a romantic city that you can never forget. But the weather is getting hot here, so do bring some summer clothes as well. Vienna is famous for music but unfortunately I am not interested in classical music at all. But the famous Vienna pork chop taste really good. Budapest has a low price level where you can enjoy delicious Hungarian food with very reasonable price. The last trip in April in Copenhagen, Denmark, which is very close to Lund that you only need to take 45 minutes train. The food here is more or less similar to Sweden but I highly recommend a very old theme park here, Tivoli. The rides and games here is very attractive and more importantly, there is a concert every Friday and the ticket price is included. May Travelling alone in Dublin, Ireland and Edinburgh, UK can definitely help you to explore yourself and find your courage. In Edinburgh, besides visit inside the city, it is also worthy to join a highland tour. Although it would be a bit expensive, the scenery there will make you overwhelming. The semester was coming to an end. I had to catch up my homework and study after playing so hard. But still, I made some time to walk down Lund city and prepare to say goodbye. June After my last examination, I immediately packed my luggage and back to Hong Kong on 3 rd June. Do not forget to wear summer clothes.

4 Part 2: General Exchange Information 1. Visa Procedure Visa application can be submitted online and details will be provided by Lund University clearly. You can choose to do the biometric measurement in Wanchai or Sweden. I did it in Malmo, Sweden, and they mailed the resident permit to my accommodation after a week. 2. Accommodations Application for accommodation is to be made in Hong Kong. Again, details will be given by Lund University. I was assigned to an international corridor room in Delphi, which was located near two supermarkets. But to go to school, you have to walk by 15 minutes or by bike for 5 minutes. 3. Course Registration You will be asked to course registration in Hong Kong. You can choose 5 courses at maximum, and 2 alternatives are needed for each choices. I took 4 courses in total, 2 for each half semester. 1) International Business and multinational Enterprises (7.5 ECTS) 2) Industrial Organization (7.5 ECTS) 3) Macroeconomics Analysis (7.5 ECTS) 4) Development Economics (7.5 ECTS) The first course is a Management course where there is no examination. You only need to do several assignment and a group project. While the other 3 courses are Economics courses, which emphasize on mathematics and graphs. Usually, some assignments are required, but the grades are heavily depended on examinations. But the teaching style is very likely to UST. 4. Transportation Lund is a small city where you can travel by bike to everywhere within 15 minutes. Therefore, walk on foot is also a good option if you want to save the renting cost of bike (around SEK800). Bus and taxi is also available in Lund. I usually take bus where carrying luggage to airport. But taxi is very expensive that you will not take it. There is also a train station in Lund connecting to other cities. 5. Communication Swedish speaks very good command of English so there will not be any problem.

5 6. Food Eating out is quite expensive in Lund, approximately 80 SEK for lunch and 150SEK for dinner. Therefore, I usually cook myself since the price of the food in supermarket is reasonable, similar to Hong Kong. And tap water is very clean and safe here. Also, there are microwave ovens inside school buildings, so you can bring your own lunch. 7. Climate Lund is very cold and windy during January to March, sometimes there will be snow. So bring more warm clothes and a down jacket with water resistance. But starting from April, the summer comes and most of the days will be sunny. But still it is cool since Lund is very windy all the time. 8. Money and Expenses The exchange rate of SEK and HKD keeping changing during my exchange period, but it was around 0.95 HKD to 1 SEK, so the conversion is very easy when you buy things. To use the ATM in Lund, make sure you get a bank card with a plus sign or cirrus in Hong Kong. Items Expenses (HKD) Return air tickets Visa 1000 Insurance 2000 Rents Food 5000 Travelling Others 5000 Total 75000

6 Part 3: Checklist 1. Documents (passports, letter of acceptance) 2. Money (SEK, bank card, credit card) 3. Electronic devices (mobile phone, camera, laptop with chargers and adaptors) 4. Electrical appliances (router, rice cooker, hair dryer) 5. Others (down jacket, slippers, medicines)
