Below you can find some important information regarding the introduction, registration and the start of the programme. More information was sent to you by e-mail in June.

Programme and course start

The programme starts on Monday 2 September 2024, with a mandatory roll call on campus and an introduction to the programme and the first course. Students who have not yet registered will be registered on the first course following the roll call.

Activate your student account

To be able to start your studies at Karolinska Institutet (KI), you must first activate your student account and then register for the first course in the programme that you are admitted to.

You activate your account according to the instructions under the headline “Activation code” at our Student Account web page. You can activate your student account from 2 August 2024. The account must be activated before you can register for your course.

An activation code will be sent to your email in June 2024 (to the same email address that you used when you applied for the programme), so check your spam/promotion folder if you have not received it. If you cannot find your activation code, contact for guidance. If you already have a Swedish National registration number, you can see more options at the Student Account web page.

If you have previously studied at KI, you will continue to use the same student account as before.

Register for courses 

Once you have activated your student account, you must register for the first course of the programme you are admitted to.

The registration is open between 19 August and 4 September (23:59 hrs) 2024. If you fail to register within this period, we will consider your study place declined and offer it to a waitlisted applicant.

Once you are registered, you are officially considered a student and can participate in course activities and teaching. Note that even if you have registered, you must still participate in the mandatory roll call on the first day of each course on the programme. You must also participate in mandatory teaching activities.

The first course you must register to is: Diet and health - scientific evidence, recommendations and sustainability
You register by logging in to Ladok with your student account.
