Arrival and registration

The arrival arrangements were good and I got to know many international students and got to know Sweden a bit better. The health center worked perfect for MRSA test.


I was very happy with my appartment in Jagargatan. I aspecially liked that there was someone washing everyday, because then it was always very nice. I was not so pleased with that we had to go to Karolinska to pay every month. This was difficult because we werent going there for lessions that often.

Leisure time and social activities

It´s always easiest to make friends with people from my own country, but I made some friends in my swedish class. It was not that easy, since they were in there last year of medical studies. Everyone was very nice thougt.


I chose KI because I had heard a lot of good things from the former exchangestudents. I knew that KI is well respectet in Europe and wanted to take part in that. Stockholm is a nice city, and I wanted to live there and this was a nice excuse. We got a lot of good information from our study-abroad information in me university.

Courses during the exchange period

ELAX16 : Obstetrics and Gynaecology
I was very pleased with both clinical and theoretical courses. It was very good that we had an supervisor in each hospital we had clinical rotation.

The conclusion is very good, I couldnt be more happy about my period at KI
