The summer breeze brings about a new wave of incoming students from all over the world to Sweden as the school term is about to start. Whether you are an international student set for adventure or a local collegiate brimming with aspirations, here are 4 great Swedish apps for students to kick-start their installation here!
Integration – Welcome
In Welcome app, you get to ask any questions about anything under the sun. There will be people ready to help you with your integration, and this exchange makes a digital handshake. Voila! Time to cast away all physical and language barriers in way of making new friends here. Additionally, there is also an ‘events’ column to check out the latest happenings.
Explore – Res I Stockholm
Having trouble where to go in this vibrant city? Simplify your traveling in Stockholm using Res i STHLM, a free journey planner for SL, the Stockholm region’s public transport authority. Either you’re traveling by bus or commuter train, metro or light rail, the app helps you plan your whole journey and stay updated on current departure times and traffic disturbances.
While there are also many other transport applications around, we heard that this is the favourite among the locals. And you know what they always say- When in Stockholm, do as Stockholmers do.
Immersion – Fudigo
If you are coming to Sweden with the expectation of high costs of living… Well, you will not be disappointed. Meals here come with a heavy price tag so individuals whip out their own creations almost daily. Whether you are new to the scene or a seasoned cook (haha, geddit?), we have the app for you!
Fudigo is an application that tailors your meals to your desired lifestyle by providing delicious and easy-to-make meal plans. Moreover, all the ingredients are automatically organised into a time-saving shopping list. Here’s to really enjoying your home-cooked meals!
In a rush – Karma
Last but not least, we know how student schedules can go pretty crazy at times with the lapping waves of deadlines. Or sometimes, we just don’t have the ounces of energy to prepare our meals day after day. With Karma, you can easily buy good food at half price! As you take away this food, you are also protecting the environment by decreasing food wastage.
One of the partners in this app is none other than Wayne’s Coffee, one of the most popular café chain here. This also means that the restaurants featured are super accessible to us, way to go! Download this app now, your wallet will thank you!
Life (as a student) is too short, but with better planning, we hope that these apps for students will make your journey a better experience! Oh, did we mention that all these 5 applications are available in English? Definitely user-friendly for any exchange student out there!Here we have 4 great Swedish apps for students to kick-start their installation here! Click To Tweet
