The arrangement is as follows:

The SCORA X-changes mass IFMSA students from around the world to participate in a packed programme of workshops, lectures and debates in the field of reproductive health. The programmes are based around five areas of SCORAs:

  • Sex education and teaching
  • Maternal health and access to abortion rights
  • HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases
  • Gender issues and sexuality
  • Sexual violence

These exchanges give you a chance to as nursing student get an in-depth knowledge in these topics, develop practical features and share ideas and thoughts with students from other parts of the world.

This is also a great opportunity for those who like to travel and experience other cultures. The programmes are organised so that you travel around in different cities and thus have the opportunity to listen to speakers and experts from different parts of the country. Each SCORA X-change also has an exciting social programme. This means travelling around the country, crazy parties and socials activities. A super exciting experience that you will remember! This is the trip for you who want to deep dive into international relations and have with you an understanding of the various aspects you had not previously.
