Exchange report - incoming students
Home university: University of Toledo
Study programme: Occupational Therapy
Exchange programme: INK
Semester: Spring semester 2012/2013

Arrival and registration

It was really nice that I could get into Jägaragatan even at the late hour when I arrived. The orientation day was fine.


The housing was a pretty standard dorm. It would have been nice to know where I was placed for my clinical before I applied for housing, as making a different selection would have substantially reduced my commute time

Leisure time and social activities

I did go to one international students event, and talked a little to the people on my hallway. However, all the students I interacted with were foreign, so I didn't get an opportunity to make any Swedish friends

My program has a contract with KI so that student can go abroad. I was excited by the opportunity to do part of my clinical study abroad.  The information I received was basically good and timely, although it would have been good to know that I could get the student discount transit card with the temporary student card (even though I was only briefly at Karolinska)

It was a really good experience for me.

Language and Culture


Studies in general

My metro and the whole department were great at making me feel welcome and helping me understand what was going on. I was able to interact which many of the patients, to greater and lesser extents, but almost always had the chance to debrief after a session.
