Textile engineering student acknowledged on Global Swede ceremony
Tuser Biswas from Bangladesh, master student in textile engineering, represented the University of Borås at the Global Swede ceremony of 2016 in Stockholm on the 18th of May.
– This nomination is a big honor for me. I have so much respect for Sweden and hope I can continue being a great ambassador for Sweden, as well as for the University of Borås. I have learned so much here thanks to my amazing teachers and have been able to develop both as a student and person. Hopefully I can promote Sweden and influence more international students to come here, says Tuser Biswas.
The University of Borås had chosen to nominate Tuser Biswas as Global Swede this year. Tuser Biswas started his studies at the Master’s programme in textile engineering in August 2014. Ever since he started he has contributed to a positive study environment with his intellectual capacity combined with humbleness and respectful attitude to his peers. Tuser Biswas has also been able to convey previous work experience from the textile industry in Bangladesh to his programme.
For the sixth year in a row the Global Swede ceremony was organised by the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs together with the Swedish Institute. The purpose of the ceremony is to acknowledge international top students enrolled in Swedish universities. 22 students from 17 different countries outside the EU/EAA received their diplomas the 18th of May in Stockholm.
– The foreign students are a valuable asset for Sweden’s development and for future competitiveness. Apart from contributing to new knowledge and perspectives, they are also an important resource for building bridges between Sweden and the surrounding world, says State Secretary Oscar Stenström.
