Activate your student account

An active student account is necessary for studies at KI! If this is the first time you are studying at KI, you must 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 2023. The account must be activated before you can register for your course.

An activation code will be sent to your email in July (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 2 August and 16 August. 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 you must also participate in the mandatory roll call on the first day, please see below.

The course you must register for is:
Introduction to biomedical studies

You register by logging in to your student account in Ladok 

You can always log in and check your registration on the link above.

Declining your study place

If you need to decline your study place, please do so by logging in to your account at or and go to “My pages”. If you decide to withdraw from your study place after the registration period has started on 15 August, please contact the programme officer Markus Jonegård
