Studera.nu Online Application Website Crashes – Again. Much discussion on Twitter.

Students making last minute applications to Swedish universities would have had problems, and a ton of stress, last night when the studera.nu crashed for a few hours in the late evening. This was reported in more detail, and in Swedish, at the Aftonbladet site.  As Aftonbladet reports, and as I know from my own experience, this is at least the third time this has happened during an application period.

First, this is just unacceptable for such an important service particularly one which, if I\’m correct, the universities themselves pay for.

The Twittersphere not unsurprisingly carried a lot of discussion about this, check out Twingly or Twitter Search to see. Most of the tweets are in Swedish but some are in English.

Studera.nu update

I’ll be offline for the next week, so I’ve switched off comments, I’ll do my best to answer them when I return.

For those of you who are waiting for acceptance results for studera.nu, I spoke with them and the previous error messages that some of you were receiving has been fixed. See my earlier blog post about this
