    Where should I go.I'm having trouble deciding ETH,Zurich or KTH,Stockholm.
    I've admits from both universities.
    Please help!


    From what I heard (source: exchange students):
    + money
    -/+ not all faculities in town
    - high living costs
    - selection of students during first year (expect failure rates of 50%)
    + Scandinavian Winter
    + more relaxed atmosphere, so more student friendly, exspecially if your motivation decreases under to much pressure, I would recommand to go to KTH, as the Swedish system is very student friendly (e.g. often no time pressure during exams)
    - high living costs
    - less money than ETH (that can of course vary), regarding research or student groups (no carbon with formula student)

    Nevetheless a tough choice.

    What do you like about ETH?
    What do you like about KTH?

    Have you ever been to Switzerland or Sweden?

    I don't know much about ETH, but I used to live in Switzerland and I am from Sweden.
    As for winters, Swiss and Swedish winters are very similar.
    For the majority of exams, you do have a set time limit. The only thing I would personally say that makes Swedish universities a bit more relaxed is that you can do resits and still have the chance to score the highest mark. But you do have time limits.
