Information about exchange studies and studies abroad related to the corona virus (Covid-19)
With increased vaccination coverage, the international pandemic situation is changing. What applies in different countries can change with short notice.
KI advises students planning to study abroad to closely monitor the situation in the receiving country, to follow the Sweden’s Foreign Ministry's current travel restrictions and what applies to enter the receiving country.
These are a few reasons to why your exchange studies might not be able to be carried out as planned:
- the hosting institution suspends or cancels exchange studies at short notice
- demands on vaccination or PCR-test
- quarantine regulations in the host country
- closed country borders
- travel restrictions/recommendations from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs
- canceled or delayed flight or train travel
- changed terms and conditions for insurance (Student OUT)
If you are unable to carry out your exchange studies as planned – because the hosting institution cancels your exchange on short notice or you yourself decide not to go – a consequence may be that you lose the guaranteed study place on course(s) that you should have taken at KI and have to resume your studies later.
KI cannot reimburse for expenses you incurred related to your exchange studies if for any reason the exchange is not carried out or cancelled.
If the exchange is canceled, contact your International coordinator.
You are always welcome to contact your International coordinator if you have any questions.
