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. 

1. 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. You can activate your student account from August 2, 2024. The account must be activated before you can register for your course. 

An activation code will be sent to your email in June 2024 (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.

2. 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 19 August and 4 September (23:59 hrs) 2024. If you fail to register within this period, we will consider your study place declined and offer it to a waitlisted applicant.
