When I have returned

Credit transfer

Apply for credit transfer from your exchange studies as soon as you return. Contact the academic director of your study programme and present the original certificate along with all the information you have collected on your clinical placement or the theoretical courses you have taken. The academic director reviews your documents and decides on credit transfer.

MRSA screening

Only relevant to clinical students:

Due to the risk of introducing MRSA (Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) in Sweden, all those who have come in contact with medical care abroad must undergo MRSA culture screening. Contact the Infectious Disease Clinic or your health care centre to arrange an appointment for MRSA screening, so that you can get an appointment as soon as possible after your return.

Evaluation of your exchange studies

Remember to write a travel report after you return. Your travel report is important as a source of inspiration for other students and contributes to the quality assurance of the partner university. You need to submit your travel report in order for the faculty’s travel grant to be paid.  

Tell others about your exchange studies

As a returning exchange student to the Faculty of Medicine, you are expected to participate in information meetings on exchange studies and help to inspire more people to study abroad. The International Office will contact you.
