As a new student at KI there is a couple of things that are good to know.
First of all that there are two campuses -one in Solna and one in Huddinge. Most of Medicinska Föreningen´s activities are arranged in Solna since this is where we have our student association building. This is also where we keep all our proms, gasques and popular Friday Pubs.
Secondly, that Medicinska Föreningen works every day to make sure that your education keeps the highest possible standard and that we represent the students in several descision making bodies within KI. At our office in Solna you also find the ombudsmen of KI. They can help you, weather you’re a student, a PhD or a Post Doc, if you run into any problems. You can read more about them and the rest of MF staff under “About MF”.
Thirdly, we own the bookstores at Solna and Huddinge campus – Medicinska Bokhandeln in Solna and Harrys Böcker in Huddinge. This means that the prices here are reduced to fit a student budget and that your teachers can tell the bookstores what books to order in before a specific course.
In the beginning of every semester Medicinska Föreningen’s Reception Committee arranges plenty of activities for all new students to make you all feel extra welcome! Check out their page under “Committees” in the upper panel.
At last, but not least, don’t forget that getting involved in the student association is the best way to meet new friends and to make sure that your time at KI isn’t only about studying! Whatever you like, there is something for you here, and if it doesn’t – contact us and we’ll help you start it up!
Don’t forget to add us on facebook – we will keep you posted about the upcoming reception! http://www.facebook.com/mottagningsutskottet.mf?fref=ts
