I really enjoyed both the program, the atmosphere, the extra-curricular activities and the university in general. First of all, the program corresponds to what I applied for and gives a good outline of what I need for a career in that field. However, there is too much of a focus on academic work, with not enough practical experience.
The teachers are all great, open and helpful, however, students need to contact the teacher. Teachers expect students to be proactive and go and ask the teacher for help when it is needed. Once asked, it is gracefully given.
The university has more international than national students, which makes for a very good environment, especially when wanting to work in a global world.
The union is also very strong and protects the rights of the students, as well as organises events.
JU provides a combination of a truly international environment where you will meet students from all around the world with an authentic Swedish entrepreneurial spirit and innovative teaching methods. Strong focus in many programmes is placed on sustainability in which Sweden can be seen as a world leader. Another strength of the University is an extraordinary student life with a huge range of activities, trips and various student organisations to choose from if you are looking for active fulfilling student life and a community environment. Moreover, students have a great chance to start their own business while studying if this is something that you are interested in. The only inconvenience I found is that in most of the projects, group work is required what can be difficult due to the different level of English among students.View more
Jönköping University is a very good place to really learn a subject. My program is media and communication, and I can say that I have teachers who really seem to care about the program. It is also pretty easy to get help when needed. A lot of information is also posted on canvas, a tool that really makes it easy to get all the needed course information.
Currently, because of Corona, there is a little miscommunication at times. Teachers who are not able to give all needed informaton quickly enough. On the other hand, they are doing their best and Zoom has been a somewhat helpful tool to for example being able to do exams from home.
I would recomend this school to students who want to study, media and communications at least.View more

I decided to study 2-year Master programme at the Jönköping University and I haven’t regretted it ever since. Unlike in other European countries, the courses here are very practical – we work with companies on their real-life projects, we work in teams, we make presentations… we also learn about the theories, but we have to think about them and express our own opinions, not just memorize some information. There is also a lot of student organizations that you can join to get even more practical experience. The city is small but that is what makes it a great student city. And one semester you are encouraged to go abroad for exchange studies – everyone can go.View more
Jönköping University has a lot of international students and very competent teachers making the study experience unique. The buildings are modern and newest technologies are used. Students can always use the most recent Office package for free. Recommended highly!View more
JU offers a variety of classes for almost every interest and specialisation. To me it offered the chance of studying in an international context with professors from all over the world (online or on campus). Furthermore, Sweden offers free tuition to students from the EU. The staff and communication service is always eager to help and provides essential information and aid (financial, accomodation, etc.).
I particularly like the variety of nationalities and thereby different inputs and points of view, which enriched me on an educational, but most of all, personal basis.
