Hello! Inika here ♥ I’m a first-year Biomedicine bachelor’s student at Karolinska Institutet. I’ve had quite the journey here to the doors of Aula Medica, and I’ll be writing as a Digital Ambassador blogger for my program. How did I get here, why did I pick KI, and what will you be seeing from me?… Read More A hello from the new blogger for the Biomedicine Bachelor’s Program!
For many of us, the feeling of arriving in a new country might be daunting at first. Perhaps you wonder what is expected of you at uni? Or if you will make any new friends? Well, I want to assure you that living in Stockholm will be one of the most exciting and enriching experiences you’ll… Read More Hej new student, did you arrive in Stockholm?
I assume that you have read the previous money diary blog from Anne and Shadali, if not then go ahead and read those two amazing blogs. The blogs highlight the expenditure of a single student in Stockholm. If you want to predict the expenditure for a student coming with a family, it should be easy… Read More Money Diary Vol.3 : for students with family
In November 2017 I was walking through residential Norrmalm in the heart of Stockholm, keenly aware of my foreignness because everyone passing by was elderly and presumably Scandinavian. I was checking out a room for rent in a two-bedroom apartment owned by an elderly lady. She had an issue with girls who had lived in… Read More How to find housing in Stockholm

During the summer, I received an email from my previous BSc course leader that they needed volunteers for the Nordic Life Science (NLS) Days conference. NLSDays is the biggest life science event in the Nordic region. It is… Read More My Nordic Life Science experience
Hello and TERE TULEMAST! Yes, I just greeted you in Estonian! You know, living this expat life in Stockholm & slowly, but steadily forgetting your own national language calls for some desperate measures 😀 Hello everybody, my name is Dasha Shvaikovskaya, I am a nearly 22 y.o. slavic girl born and raised in Estonia who… Read More From #BiomedsLife to #NutritionistToBe: continuation of my journey at KI
In my previous blog, school work vs. lab work, I compared my school life in these two different cities. I want to expand my comparison into my non-school life between New Haven and Stockholm. Why specifically New Haven you might wonder? The reason being that there is no way for me to generalize my experience… Read More Stockholm, Sweden vs. New Haven, Connecticut
The first thing I noticed upon arrival in Stockholm was how vacant it is. I came from Bangalore which has a population density of 11884 people per km square compared to a meager density of 5012 in Stockholm. Having lived here for more than a year now, I have come to realize that population difference… Read More Comparing extremities- An Indian in Sweden
Hello, mina vänner (my friends) and välkommen (welcome) to my second blog! (Can you tell I’m practicing my Swedish and it’s not working that great for me?) Anyway, I’ve been all over the place since I started the dreaded GOC of the biomedicine bachelor programme. (General and Organic Chemistry but more on that later, I… Read More The KI Effect- What Can You Expect After Joining KI?
