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 2023. 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 2 August for the fall term of 2023. 

An activation code will be sent to your email in June 2023 (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 14 August and 30 August 2023 (23:59 hrs). 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:
