Welcome to the Master's Programme in Molecular techniques in Life Science.
Here you can find important information regarding introduction, registration and the start of the programme.

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.

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.

Register for your first course

Once you have activated your student account, you must register for the first course of the  Master's Programme in Molecular techniques in Life Science.

The registration is open between 15 August and 31 August. If you fail to register within this period, we will consider your study place declined and offer it to a waitlisted applicant.

The first two courses of the programme are:

Genetics, 5MT009, 5 credits
Dates: 2022-08-29 - 2022-10-14

Applied Communication, 5MT008, 7.0 credits
Dates: 2022-08-30 - 2022-12-12

Once you are registered, you are officially considered a student and can participate in course activities and teaching.
