    Tell us about the University West
    University West is located at Trollhattan, about 40 minutes by train to Gothenburg the second largest city in Sweden. It is not difficult to find transport to anywhere you want to go but with social life due to the coronavirus I didn't see much but it was not bad because the student union used to organise programs.
