Story time: Why I chose KTH last spring

In about 36 hours (depending on your time zone), you will learn if you have been admitted to KTH for next fall, and you’ll have to decide if you do want to study here. It can be a little confusing, but let me give you some #inspo and tell you how I got to KTH!

To be honest, when I applied to KTH, I was pretty lost in my post-bachelor life and didn’t really know what to do next. I had just finished a contract in industry (I am a junior mechanical engineer back in Canada), but didn’t enjoy it as much as I would’ve liked, so I figured that pursuing further studies could be a good alternative. I quickly searched for programs related to sustainability and energy, applied two days before the deadline and left for a 6-month trip, not expecting much.

I pretty much forgot about it, until I received my admission letter a year ago, along with one from Switzerland. This good news inspired me to indeed start a master degree after my trip, but I needed to choose where. What made me choose Sweden is the sustainability focus of the program, as well as the “newness” factor that Scandinavia had, plus the lower living costs in Stockholm (surprising but true).

I’m really happy with my choice; I went from knowing nothing about Sweden to not really wanting to leave anytime soon, and maybe that could happen to you too!

Don’t forget that there will be life chat sessions this weekend for all admitted students, as well as webinars next week, so make sure to attend to have more info and start planning!
