Student Profiles

Karl Gustav Thunberg

(BA History)

"It is a small town, much like the one I am from in Sweden. Aberystwyth has a great nightlife and plenty of societies making sura that you will always have something you could do when you are not studying."


Carl Danielsson

BSc/Econ International Relations

My very first impression of Aber is likely the beautiful landscape and the hills surrounding Cardigan Bay. And the rather unpretentious train fare from Birmingham to Aber. An observation, which persisted throughout my studies, was the frequent rainfall. But this did in no way interfere or reduce my experience of Aber as a colorful, bustling and energetic town. I also recall the student society. It was more than I could wish for. Aber is a small town with a significant student population consisting of a large and active international student community. Seeing as Aber is far away from larger settlements, it means few students head home during weekends. Everyone stays put and that helps creating a special community. It is really easy to meet people and start new friendships and relationships in Aber. Its still, after some 15 years, very close to my heart.

After graduating from Aber I went on to do a Masters degree at St. Andrews. Currently I am working as a senior adviser in international development cooperation at the Swedish Board of Agriculture. In my position I am responsible for identifying, setting up and carrying out capacity-building projects in the area of public administration reform. My work allows me to travel and work in many low-income countries. My degree in international relations has helped me tremendously to perform well in an international multi-cultural environment. Particularly the critical theories and political philosophy in general has equipped me with a mindset that allows me to quickly understand “systems” and their subordinated components on a theoretical as well as practical level. Several “wisdoms” from Aber that I may have questioned at the time, is unconsciously guiding much of my work today. Particularly my ability to take on a critical approach to assignments and existing structures and processes based on a fairly thorough understanding of theoretical systemic constructs.
