KI backpack for all new students

All students starting one of KI's bachelor’s or master’s programs and exchange students receive the popular KI backpack at the start of the semester. The backpack can only be picked up during the Welcome day at the beginning of the semester.

Every semester, KI organizes a Welcome day for new students which includes a ceremony and study fair in Aula Medica on Campus Solna. During the study fair, all new students starting one of KI’s bachelor’s or master’s programmes, and exchange students can pick up a KI backpack. The Welcome day is arranged during the first week of the semester. More information about when the Welcome day is and how to collect your backpack is sent via email before the start of the semester. Remember that you are only guaranteed to receive a  backpack if you pick it up at the study fair during the Welcome day.

How do I collect my KI backpack?

If you are a registered student in one of the bachelor’s or global master’s programmes at KI, and you have registered for the Welcome day, you can pick up your backpack during the study fair. 

If you do not have the opportunity to collect your backpack yourself at the Welcome day, you can ask a classmate or friend to collect it for you. In such cases, the person who collects your backpack needs to show the QR-code which you receive when making a reservation for the Welcome day.

Good to know!

It is only if you attend the Welcome day that you are guaranteed to receive a backpack. We only hand out one backpack per student and only students in their first semester receive it. If against the odds, your backpack should break or similar, you need to buy a new one yourself at the Medicinska Bokhandeln.
