I studied at Uni here and wasn't impressed. The teachers don't seem to have any teaching experience and most of them work like 50 percent and have another job.

There is no professionalism, if they don't like you for some reason they will fail you. The teachers are usually passive aggressive against students who ask questions or question the usual faulty information given. Most students take a gap year because of depression or anxiety. Out of a 100 students only around 50 finish their studies. I wish I had known all this before I came to study in Sweden!

No one comes to Sweden for the education. Unless it is in the top 3 schools, and specialized education.

The fault, sad to say is yours.

Why would someone specifically pick a country which does not have high university ranking? Education is free for citizens - but it is just basic...no special grading system. The fault is on you.

My guess is rather that the people complaining about swedish higher education expected to be coddled and hand-held through it all.
Newsflash, you are a graduate student you are expect to figure stuff out on your own.

Well because as a native Swedish speaker in Finland you have more opportunities in Sweden. And what I studied in Sweden there is nothing similar for a Swedish speaker over there and that's why many of us come to Sweden not realizing how far behind the education system over here is

I had exactly the same experience. 100% agree with everything you said. Especially they are very biased towards those foreign born students who have swedish person number. Because they don't favor permanent foreigners in this country. P.S. so many times so called professors were unable to answer student's question in the auditorium. In one word, academia is very bad quality in this country.

I did my master at Lund University and trust me quality of education is very bad. I still don't understand how they have scored in ranking, for fancy classrooms or good student life maybe. But definitely not for quality of education.
