Living a Lagom Life – KTH Blog Archive

As of September 2017, I have finished my wonderful two-year journey of being a blogger at KTH. In this time, I published more than 100 blog posts of various genres. However, most of the blog posts revolved around three things: Sharing tips and information for new students, Sharing my experience as a student at KTH, and my favorite – sharing pictures from my travels to various countries in Europe.

Being a blog, the posts from these topics are mixed up in the timeline and some of the information might get outdated with time. For ease of exploring among these posts, I have created this home page with an index of most of the blogs segregated according to the genre; This will help people who come here looking for something specific but end up going through a lot of the stuff that they don’t want to see at that point in time. Here’s how I’ve divided the posts:

  • Information Pools: Dedicated information pools with links to blogs related to Admission Guides and Traveling (all those blogs are present here as well)
  • Life in Stockholm: Blog posts sharing my experience as a Stockholmer.
  • Travel Blogs: Plenty of photos and helpful tips from my traveling experiences in Europe. (I highly recommend to read the blog series from my road trip to Norway)
  • Life at KTH: Sharing some unique experiences at KTH.
  • KTH Admission & Pre-departure Guide: Everything you need to know if you plan to apply to KTH.
  • Stockholm Guide: New student in Stockholm, general information about public transport, exploring the town and few more basic things to help you settle down.
  • Career Talks: Some useful career advice for students of KTH, tips for CV and looking jobs, thesis etc. I recommend reading the blog with tips for writing a good CV.
