16 Eng Några resultat av diskussionerna Antagningsprocessen fungerar bra med snabba svar. Snabbare svar på stipendieansökan och möjlighet att även söka stipendium efter år 1 Svårt att få bostad vilket får andra konsekvenser som problem med att öppna bankkonto eller att folkbokföra sig Oklar information kring rutiner hur det går till att lämna biometrisk information vid svenska utlandsmyndigheter Förlängning av uppehållstillstånd behöver vara smidigare med snabbare beslut Besked om uppehållstillstånd borde ges på engelska

17 Eng Några resultat av diskussionerna Behov av bättre information om studiekultur och relation lärare- student i Sverige Vid grupparbeten bör lärosätet mixa svenska och internationella studenter och ge ett bättre stöd för att det interkulturella samarbetet ska fungera Bättre information kring vilka sjukförsäkringar lärosätet ansvarar för och vilka som den enskilde studenten måste teckna själv Alla lärosäten borde erbjuda karriärvägledning Skapa plattformar för interaktion mellan studenter och alumni Kurser i svenska borde vara mer praktiska Allmän information är ibland mest riktad till studenter på kandidatnivå, finns risk att masterstudenter missas Ta in det internationella perspektivet i kursutveckling
