Voices from Student & Knowledge 2016
Our Visitors - what's the best part about Student & Knowledge?
”We feel the fair is very rewarding, as it provides a lot of information about the opportunities available. It’s great to meet education advisers and talk to CSN (the Swedish authority in charge of financial aid for studies and home equipment loans). The face-to-face meetings make it easier to get answers to your questions. We get more information than we would otherwise. The most interesting part was all the information we got about studying abroad.”
Moa Wiklund and Lava Assad, age 17
”I think the best part of the day was all the information I received. Most of all I learned about new opportunities that I was unaware of before, especially things I could not find online.”
Ali Sohrabi, age 20
”It’s been a very informative and interesting day. All the exhibitors here are very knowledgeable and we’ve gained a completely new view of the future. Before the fair we were worried about the future, but this day has made us feel much more relaxed. We listened to the student panel on the knowledge stage and they advised the students that it’s also important to have fun and enjoy student life. We realise now that it’s a myth that student life is scary, and it will actually be a lot of fun.”
Jonna Nilsson and Maja Bellman, age 18
What is the best part of exhibiting at Student & Knowledge?
Having the opportunity to inspire and motivate young people. An amazing fair. I personally found my dream career here when I was 16!
Caroline Hansson, Course Specialist, STS
It’s a great fair and there is a lot of interest. Lots of interested young people and a very positive atmosphere. Saturday is really good in our opinion, when the students come back with their parents.
Eva Nilsson, Communication Officer, Lund University
The face-to-face meetings and the fact it is so big and so well organised. It’s an opportunity for us to be seen, meet upper secondary students and network with our target group.
