Jessenius Faculty of Medicine Showcases at Sweden's Largest Student Fair

Representatives from the Jessenius Faculty of Medicine at Comenius University in Martin made a notable appearance at Sweden's largest student fair, "Saco Studentmässa," in Stockholm.

11. 12. 2023 11.12 hod.

The faculty's delegation included Dean Andrea Čalkovská, Associate Dean for International Relations and Education in English, Martin Janík, and Janka Sýkorová from the Foreign Relations Office. Their discussions focused on experiences, future plans, and potential collaborations.

A student representative informed Swedish students about the benefits of studying medicine in Martin and the opportunities the city offers to international students. The Slovak Embassy in Sweden highlighted the participation of JFMED and other Slovak faculties at the fair through its Facebook page. The embassy praised the quality of education these institutions provide and noted the significant number of successful doctors working in Sweden who graduated from these schools.

"The faculty educates students from Slovakia and around the world. At the fair, they explained to numerous high school students the conditions and advantages of studying, as well as opportunities for accommodation, transportation, student activities, and the culture and nature that Martin and its surroundings offer. They answered many questions that students naturally have before deciding to pursue challenging medical studies, especially far from home. We are confident that Sweden will soon discover the quality of higher education offered from Slovakia and appreciate the international experience gained. And also the hospitality and beauty of Slovakia and its people, and the friendships formed!" read a statement from the embassy.
