Arrival and registration

At first we were kinda lost but we managed it to the accommodation. the next day we had a meeting with our coordinator and from there everything went well. He explained us what to do, showed us the buildings and introduced us to our supervisor.

UAC accommodations are really great! The rooms are maybe a little small, but the experience of living there with a lot of other exchange students was very fun and interesting.

Leisure time and social activities

We went out and did a lot of activities with the people from the accommodation. And I made there a lot of great friends.

I choose to go on exchange because I want to live in abroad, open myself to international. And our school proposed us Karolinska, so after some research on KI, I tought it was a very good idea.

Language and Culture

We participate to a Swedish class, but according to me, you can't really learn much with a ten weeks class (2h/week).

Studies in general

We worked in the lab on our thesis. Working in a team on a research project was really interesting and our supervisor was a great help to accomplish that work.
