Arrival and registration

Good , it was well arranged, we were shown around and got all information needed. 


I lives at Pax, which is very near Solna and the central station, it took me 10 minutes to KI with 507 buss. It is a 12 min ride with the bike. The rooms ar big with privat bathrooms. I was pretty lucky with my corridor we had a nice group of students from different universities and arranged weekly fikas. 

Leisure time and social activities

Challenging to Get to know the sweds, often you end up with spending you freetime with other exchange students .


I had good information before my departure and it was easy to find the accomodation. 

Courses during the exchange period

D9XX01 : Clinical Medicine- Neuro, Senses and Psyche
Eye at st.Eriks was really great, its also the sorteste course. It was wellorganized with great lectures and alot of clinics ENT at hudfinge was also noe of the better courses , here we had the lectures some weeks before the course , i learned alot in the clinics and at the seminars Neuro, a bigger course and the hardest one this semester. Since the swedish student already have had alot of neuro before, i had to study more on my own. The couse has a clinical approach and the test is Even harder han the last final Evan for the semester. Psykology :here you will have alot of pratice, it quality depends of which hospital you end up at. I had 2 really good weeks at danderyd and 2 less benefitial weeks at upplsnds vasby. The course is long and gives you the chance to really use time on understanding the subject.


Good course , it should be more information for exchange students during the course. 

Language and Culture

Though it is not far from Norwegian it is challenging to always understand especially during lectures. 

Studies in general

The studies where good, initially abit hard to find all the rooms and hospitals. Every subject is a combination of lectures and clinics. The location was divided between Huddinge and Solna campus mainly . Sometimes the adress was missing on the timetable, which made it abit difficult. The  courses were short  and ended with a little test , which pushes you to get started with the studies. Generally the quality on all was good and  its recommended to be present at all lectues and clinics.
