The Karolinska Institutet (KI) is one of the leading medical universities in the world, one of the largest in Europe and is the only university in Sweden to specialise in medicine.
Located in the Swedish capital Stockholm, KI offers unique opportunities in academic education and research for anyone wanting to work with people, for people. Their primary mission is to improve people's health through research and education. The Erasmus exchange partnership with King's Biomedical Sciences School, for two students a year, has existed since 2006.
The exchange agreement between King's and The Karolinska Institutet allows for up to 2 Full Year Equivalent (FYE) places for undergraduate and PGT students. This equates to 2 students going for a full academic year OR 4 students for a single semester OR a mixture of the two.
Eligibility for King's students
Important: Final decision on students' study abroad application to their host institution rests entirely with that host institution. Students must also meet their departments’ academic requirements to obtain final departmental approval to study abroad. It is usually at least a 60% average prior to departure, however this can vary amongst departments. Students should double check with their Study Abroad Tutor if they are unsure of their academic requirements.
King’s students that wish to study abroad at this institution should check the ‘Undergraduate options by department’ page to see if this institution is indeed an option for them.
Estimated living costs
Please see here for current estimated living costs, but actual expenses may vary depending on student lifestyle. The cost of travel to and from the country is not included in these estimates.
A reminder that King's students on exchange are not required to pay tuition fees to the host university, but you may incur administrative and/or orientation fees at the host. There may also be mandatory insurance costs, and transcripts may incur a fee.
Please also note that, if required, student visas often require applicants to supply evidence of financial support throughout the duration of the study abroad programme. Sometimes this will mean showing financial evidence for a specific amount, so please pay attention to the advice on this from the host institution.
