A success for the Linnaeus University Summer Academy
This year's Summer Academy has come to an end and we are happy to welcome new alumni. On the 16th of August the Summer Academy Ceremony took place and we all got to say good-bye to each other.
Jessica Sundström, the operational administrator for the Summer Academy, says "This year we had 190 attending students from 37 different nationalities, it's been a truly intercultural and amazing experience for everyone involved".
The Linnaeus University Summer Academy presented 14 different courses this year. On top of that there were also several exciting lectures and interdisciplinary sessions, for instance Helene Hellmark Knutsson, the Minister of Higher Education and Research, held a lecture and participated in discussion with the students.
Students leave the Summer Academy with new experiences, knowledge and a large international network. "I have made friends from different parts of the world that I never would have met otherwise. And all thanks to Linnaeus University in beautiful Kalmar. I'll be back!" a student says.
