Victor Agbebo inspired and motivated the first year students on how to be their best self.

When Victor started his studies at the department, he felt both exited, intimidated and alone. But by taking advantage of resources, listening to advice and really giving it his best, he managed to take control of his studies and became more confident, outgoing and successful as a student.

Life as a new master’s student, perhaps far away from home, can be challenging. Victor emphasizes to support each other.

- A small act of kindness can mean everything! You might think you are going through things alone, and don’t speak up. But then you realize you are not alone. If you have challenges, remember my story!

A small act of kindness can mean everything!

Victor’s top 10 best advice:

1.  Avoid procrastination

“Begin now, start right and end right!”

2. Time Management

“Make a personal time table to increase your productivity”

3. Be Curious

“Remember that no question or answer is wrong”

4. Association

“Form study groups and tap into your colleague’s knowledge”

5. Structured exams outline

“Make sure that your text is structured to enhance easy comprehension”

6. It’s OK to fail!

“See failure as an opportunity to begin again”

7. Learn to Socialize

“The more you familiarize yourself with your classmates, the easier it will be to confidently speak in their presence during seminars and lectures.”

8. Network

“Take advantage of student organization such as AGORA, Campus Vänner, HIC (Helsingborg International Connections) etc… in order to build your networking prowess.”

9. Prioritize your health

“Take your health seriously and always remember that your HEALTH IS YOUR WEALTH.”

10.  When in doubt, ask Britta!

“Master Coordinator Britta as well as  the lecturers are always available to address your concerns and provide answers if need be.”
