The International Committee (Internationella Nämnden – IN) is an organ within Medicinska Föreningen. The International Committee strives to help internationalize KI through planning events and activities on campus that promote internationalization. We work closely with Global Friends, about whom you can read more by clicking on their name on the banner to the right!
All IN meetings are held in English and IN is comprised of students from around the world. The International Committee is a great fit for you if you enjoy working in groups with International as well as Swedish students or have ideas on how to improve the international environment at KI and MF! The International Committee assignments are:
- To promote internationalization and coordinate the work of the different sections and associations within MF in these questions
- To appoint candidates for all boards and committees within MF and KI that deal with Internationalization questions
- To receive and discuss reports from and write instructions for all meetings and activities that deal with Internationalization and issues that affect International students, PhD students and the International community at KI
- To formulate Medicinska Föreningens opinion about Internationalization questions
- To have meetings about four times per semester in coordination with the meetings of FUM (Fullmäktige), the Union Council.
For several years IN has initiated (and helped to improve) a number of different projects, which in different ways have helped International students to get engaged in Medicinska Föreningen. These events have also been a good opportunity for Swedish- and International students to meet!
Feel free to contact us at any of the mail adresses above with questions or if you’re interested in joining one of the projects! If you have any other questions, you can send them to [email protected].
The international committee is very welcoming in terms of collaboration that promotes internationalization with other committees and organizations within MF and Karolinska Institutet.
Hope to see you around!

[email protected] is a project where native Swedish KI students teach Swedish to international members of the KI community. We have three levels of Swedish knowledge: beginner, intermediate and advanced. All students are welcome to join: either if you want to learn Swedish (International) or teach (Swedish-speaking)!

[email protected] matches two people who are eager to learn one another’s language, doing it on the terms they agree upon. Exchanging cultural and linguistic differences beyond strict “class-room” atmosphere, finding new friends via sharing your knowledge with another person and becoming a fluent speaker in foreign language – how cool would that be?
