Summer courses abroad
Below you will find presentations of summer courses, arranged by our partner universities and other organisations that Karolinska Institutet has some kind of connection to. The courses are mainly within medicine and health issues, but also within other areas such as languages, social sciences and technology. You will have a fun and interesting summer!
Please note that these are courses that are NOT included in the ordinary exchange programme through Karolinska Institutet. Most of the courses will therefore cost money. For more information, please contact the university/organisation directly.
