In the beginning it was hard to keep up with all the courses and due dates for assignments. But after a while you get used to the system. You also learn very quick that new assignments and things to do will show up during the semester unexpectedly. In the beginning you get stressed out but after a while you get used to it. An important Thai expression is “sabai” which kind of means “relax, everything will work out”.
Me and Annie stayed in a dorm on campus for Faculty of Nursing. It was very convenient- close to the school restaurants, classroom and the city. Both me and Annie were very pleased with the accommodation. We paid 5500 TBH for a room with toilet and shared refrigerators. Unfortunately, there is no opportunity for cooking, but it is possible to find cheap food around campus. In school we bought lunch for 25-35 TBH which equals 7-10 SEK. We ate out at restaurant at night and paid around 40-80 TBH. Thailand is much cheaper than Sweden. But of course, as everywhere in Thailand, the more touristic it gets the more expensive it gets.
