Your KI-Backpack

As a new student, you will get KI:s popular backpack! Information about where and when you can collect it will be sent to your e-mail that you stated on University admissions

Programme/course introduction

A mandatory programme introduction for students admitted to all programmes at Karolinska Institutet will be held on 31 August 2020, unless otherwise notified by your programme. If you cannot attend the mandatory programme introduction, please contact your programme. 

You will receive information about the time and location of the introduction in the welcome letter from your programme director, which will be sent out during the spring semester. At the programme introduction you will be given a general overview of the programme and a schedule for the first semester.

Freestanding course students should contact their teachers for information on roll call. Contact information is available on the programme and course websites.

Individual introduction sessions

For exchange students arriving during other parts of the semester (not in September or January), a shorter individual introduction session is arranged with your international coordinator at Karolinska Institutet.
