Preliminary planning for future exchange of teachers and students  


I knew about the teacher exchange  Agneta Yngve the former head of the unit of public Health Nutrition in karolinska Institutet as she has worked with some of the teaching staff in the hosting University.

The exchange was arranged through the international unit in KI

No special preperation needed apart from boking a hotel which was recommended by the hosting university.


I can say that kuana is a beutiful  city in Lithuania that has great history and remarkable fast development both economically and in tecknology. An exemple it is one of the best cities in Europe when it comes to WiFi intenet fre access when you can find that in most of public places.


Most av the teaching is assissting and facilitataing for the group work with some lectures. I noticed that in KI we have courses but in Lithuania they count semsters. The hosting university participated actively in teaching  

Teaching hours
