For students attending the Master programme in Global Health Information for newly admitted students on the Master's Programme in Global Health

Welcome to the Master programme in Global Health 2021. Here you can find important information regarding introduction, registration and the start of the programme.

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.

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. As soon as you are sure that you will be able to come to KI and study, you can activate the account. The account must be activated before you can register for your course.  You can activate your account from August 2nd for the fall term of 2021. 

An activation code has been sent to your email (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.
