Its been a week since the admission results have been announced. We would understand that you will have lots of uncertainties in your mind. I had a million doubts in my head when I received my admission results. Maria sums it up perfectly in the previous blog. KTH assists students to decode this uncertainty through a series of webinars, Facebook groups, student blogs, Instagram posts and various other platforms. This week also marks the start of “Call up week” where admitted students have the opportunity to talk to the current master programme students.
In this blog post, I write about the questions that you can ask your student ambassador that will help you evaluate your fit into your master programme at KTH. It is a wonderful opportunity to listen to the experiences of current students pursuing the master’s programme that you are looking forward to pursuing as well. You will get a first information into any questions you have in your mind. These are a few of the questions which I recommend that you ask your student ambassador to get insights about your master’s programme.
1. What are your career goals and how does the programme fit your career goal?
2. How are the courses in the programme structured? Would you say it is more towards theory-based or practical learnings?
3. What do you like about this master’s programme? And what do you not like about the programme?
4. What is the exposure to industries during the programme? How often do we get to interact with the industrial sector?
5. What are the alumni doing after graduating from the master programme?
5. What other co-curricular opportunities do you see on campus that complements the master programme?
6. As a student, what do you like about Stockholm? And what do you not like about Stockholm?
Make sure to utilise this opportunity and avoid questions that you can easily find through a simple google search. Know that it would be difficult for student ambassadors to advise you on anything personal, but they can just offer you their opinions or state facts. And finally do not shy away from asking the tougher questions that you have in your mind.
