    Lund University Sweden reviews

    It was my biggest mistake to pursue my higher studies at LTH. Professors were great and the university services are good so simply the quality of the program is very good in general. However, if you plan to stay in Sweden after graduation then here rethinking is required since Swedish companies are racist and applicant names play a big rule for the HR to shortlist them. So for some international students, such degrees might end up as a waste of time and money like in my case since back home, a degree from Sweden is useless and has no value while a degree from any US university has much more value. So, if I go back in time, I would never ever go to Sweden and I will certainly go to US for my higher degree studies bcs the US companies are more open towards foreigners as well as, they are more fair and less racist compared to Sweden.
