 The accomedation arranged  fulfills  the standard .

Language and Culture

yes there is language barrier because classes were conducted  in sewedish

there is some  differences  here most of the family is nuclear here  where in my case it is extended one and women may get some support from here relatives  during pregnancy and child care,it do not cause any clashes

Leisure time

yes social activities were arranged  one   of the midwivies invited  me  to here  home.and took me   out arround the city to have a look at.This helped me to see the  way people are living in seweden.



I like it if it is countinued , it helps a great to know how others are doing things because it helps to evalute ourselves and work for better .


Other activities

visiting to  health facilities providing sexual and reproductive health( maternity  , postnatal  , abortion care, family planning clinic , maternity  ward , attending parental education, attending team working teaching


 The information  was obtained from the department heaed of my institute and then the  visit was pre arranged.


 .I personally much impressed   because most of the teachings  were practical and well organized  the time was effectively utilized.

people in the clinical area work in integration with those in the school and the student's learning takes place with out any problem.It  is oneof the things I learned .  The other one  is parental education and teamwork  teaching.


 The teaching method is almost similar ,but the teaching in KI is highly assisted with teaching aids and practical.
