Re: Sverige, Älgar, Toker och lite annat Chat Thread

there's about 10 people applying for Swedish unis but whether or not i get in depends on how many people from Sweden want to come to Sydney... then they choose based on our grades, then the 'essay'. What uni are you at Francine?

And also does anyone know of any Swedish authors who write smaller/thinner books than Henning Mankell? Not kids books but sort of young adult type. My friend got intimidated by the thickness of Mankell's books!

Re: Sverige, Älgar, Toker och lite annat Chat Thread

I would LOVE to go to university in Sweden. I'm going to Cambridge in a few days, but when I finish that in 2008 I really like the look of a MA in Scandinavian History at Linkoping uni.

omg omg omg that's like my dream uni course! i was gonna apply to cambridge to do maths but i just couldn't be hassled and bothered to spend $40000 a year. but that's still my dream uni... and Scandinavian History is in my list of 'dream subjects'. Such a lovely combination Hope you get to do that What undergraduate subject are you doing?

Fingers crossed i can get the Uppsala spot finished my 'essay' and CV two days ago, and i just need to collect my references and hand everything in.

Oh wow! I know, it's a fantastic subject to study isn't it? (well, we think so anyway - my friends don't think much of it but I don't care hehe). I live in the UK, so I don't have to worry about huge amounts of debt, I think it's really terrible that you'd be charged $40000 a year!

Thanks - I really hope they accept me once I've completed my BA. I know I'm looking ahead a little bit (3 years ahead, lol) but I've already emailed the tutors at Linkoping lol.
I'm going to be studying History @ Cambridge. The course is so varied, I can specialise pretty early on. In my first year, I'm taking a paper in early european history, and that encompasses some Scandinavian History, yay.

I checked out Uppsala too, it looks great - good luck with getting the place! When will you know for sure? & what will you be covering there?

Hmmm the application's due October 15th, and I'll find out if I get nominated to Uppsala early next year, and they'll tell me if Uppsala's accepted me around April/May 2006 which is a long wait...

I'll just be doing my maths subjects which will be credited towards my degree here it's only for 6 months.
