Living a Lagom Life – Abhineet’s KTH Blog

If you just got into KTH, you can read some useful posts here.

This blog is a mirror copy of my KTH blog “Living a Lagom Life” and has a lot of information which can be helpful for students who are planning to study in Sweden or are currently studying in Sweden.

As of September 2017, I have stopped publishing on my KTH blog, but due to some recent queries, I have updated a number of blogs with the latest information for Autumn 2019. There are a large number of posts on this blog with countless tips and information for new students along with my experience of living in Stockholm as a KTH student. And yes, a lot of travel tales that can inspire you if you’ve got a thing for traveling.

How I became a KTH Blogger

Being a chronologically indexed blog, the posts from these topics are mixed up in the timeline and some of the information might get outdated with time.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 sorted them here according to the genre; This will help people who come here looking for something specific. 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)
