it arranged on line and the standard was satisfactory. No additional advice,

Language and Culture

We used English. The Culture is habitable but some one could be more comfortable if he/she knew swedesh as a language.

Leisure time

yes, visited the tallest tower in Stockholm, and museum, Royal castle.


overall opinion- the teacher exchange was good and fruitfull.

Other activities

I visted physiotherapy department Huddinge and Solna campus. I made friends in clinical area and shared experiences on how management of some conditions is done home and Sweden.


I got to know of my opportunity when fellow teachers from Karolinska Institute, Sweden told me. It was when they were about to end their stay in Uganda.

Partly i a participated in my preparation especially following up the visa and  i also used a travelling agent to get me an air ticket.

The accomodation was booked by the University.


Greatly it made alot of positive impact on the way how teacher-student interactions are carried out. Case presentations were good and it encourages students to learn by themselves, self confidence building in addressing a class,self organisational skills are improved upon. Yes, more so in case presentions and reflections provided all students have access and skills to extract information and use a computer.


The teaching methods were similar. only that our library is not digitalised, and its mostly in hard copies. The power point teaching is in use in general.

what i found good there and may be not very much emphasized  here is Relections on all that is taken/decided in form of practice.

Teaching hours

 Betweenfive - seven and half hours of teaching , two-three lessons per week
