Best Exchange Report 2016/2017
During the autumn semester 2016, Robin Hakimi, final-year student in Medicine, travelled to USA to carry out an exchange study period at UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. His exchange report, written in Swedish, has been awarded Best exchange report 2016/2017 at Karolinska Institutet.
Each academic year The Drafting Committee for International Issues (BIF), Board of Higher Education, awards three students that have written useful 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.
Felicia Jennysdotter Olofsgård, study programme in Biomedicine, came in second place with her report from Universiteit Leiden, The Netherlands (written in English). Third came Emma Sörqvist, Biomedical Laboratory Sciences, who wrote about her exchange studies at the Escola Superior de Tecnologia da Saúde de Lisboa, Portugal (written in Swedish).
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!
