Helena's thoughts on Goin'

Helena Bengtsson - International Communications Officer at Halmstad University

"I work as an International Communications Officer at Halmstad University. It’s a broad position where I am involved in the full process from recruitment of international students all the way to their registration and study start.

"We sincerely hope and believe that Goin' can be a safe place for newly admitted students to discuss challenges or concern they might have prior to making their decisions of studying abroad. There are so much more to studying abroad than the studies. It’s a new life that awaits them, and of course that is a big decision to take, and you would like to have as much information as possible from students who have been on this journey before."

"I think it is a great tool which focuses on the soft values compared to many other initiatives when it comes to recruitment and marketing. It is a service for our students that enables them to feel safe and prepared while making a very big decision in their life. We want to support our students in every way possible, and Goin’ has been a simple solution for us to offer this support without investing in more resources internally."
