We’ve had a long period of radio silence, but that doesn’t mean that we’ve not worked hard to make your time at KI and on campus as good as possible!
We’d like to extend a very warm welcome all of you new students, whether you’re at campus, at home or somewhere else completely. We hope that you feel that KI (and Medicinska Föreningen obviously!) has treated you well up to now and introduced you to all the important things such as fika and how to plan your study time (not introducing you to fika is obviously a crime! Pretty sure it is stated in Swedish law? maybe…).
Our names are Jessica and Puck, and we are the President and Vice President of Medicinska Föreningen (MF) – your student union at KI. We are here to support you with student life, student help and also student influence. If you want to be involved within your education, MF is your first point of contact. We hope that you’ve familiarized yourself with which section you belong to, as they are the ones that are involved in making your programme’s education as good as possible!
Most of all, we hope that you feel safe on campus. The spread of covid-19 has increased in the Stockholm region – so it is more important than ever to keep safe distance and use hand sanitizers. But remember, physical distancing does not equal social distancing! There are many ways that you can keep in contact with your classmates even though you might not meet in person.
On the 4th September, the Reception Committee organised a digital Info Pub where different parts of MF presented themselves. Go visit our Youtube-channel to watch the videos! There are loads of other committees, sections and associations that you can get involved in, you can find all of them here. If feeling hungry after human contact, this is a great way to meet new people and get some friends for life! Take it from us, having been involved within MF since 2012 (Jessica) and 2014 (Puck).
Once again, we hope that you feel excited starting this new adventure – we will be here along the way!
