During the spring semester 2015, Bioentrepreneurship student Elin Eriksson travelled to New Zealand to carry out an exchange study period at University of Auckland. Her exchange report, written in English, has been awarded “Best exchange report 2013/2014” at Karolinska Institutet.
Each academic year The Drafting Committee for International Issues (BIF), Board of Higher Education, awards three students that have written very good and interesting exchange reports. The three reports that contain the best and most vivid descriptions of the exchange study period, both academically and socially, that contains practical tips and advice on what to consider before, during and after the exchange are awarded.
Master in Biomedicine student Nadilly Bonagas came in second place with her report from ETH - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zürich, Switzerland (written in English). Third was Annina Sjelin, Occupational Therapy, who wrote about her exchange studies at the Tokyo Metropolitan University i Japan.
In their reports the students reflect about everything from the first steps before their applications are submitted to their experiences during the exchange, both academically and on a personal level. The appeal to their readers is to dare take the chance to apply for exchange studies - you will not regret it!
