Regarding the current Covid-19 pandemic

The Swedish government has recently announced that the universities in Sweden can go back to campus-based teaching in the autumn. Accordingly, Karolinska Institutet has decided to gradually return to campus-based teaching after the summer, in compliance with the Public Health Agency´s recommendations.

For information to KI's students regarding Covid-19, please see the following link:

If you have questions please revise our page for newly admitted students.

Roll call and registration

Since we will have campus-based teaching, this means that you should all be in Stockholm for the start of the autumn semester on August 31.

The programme starts on Monday August 31st  at 10:30 in Jan-Åke Gustafssonsalen, building Neo, Blickagången 16, Campus Flemingsberg, with a mandatory roll call and an introduction to the programme and the first course. Students will be registered on the first course following the roll call.

If you cannot attend the roll call, please contact us.

We look forward to meeting you in August!

Activate your student account

An active student account is necessary for studies at KI! It gives you access to a range of services, such as email, student computers, remote access to library resources, the learning platform Canvas and the university's wireless network. 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.

Declining your study place

If you need to decline your study place, please do so by logging in to your account at or and go to “My pages”. If you decide to withdraw from your study place after the registration period has started on August 17, kindly contact the programme director and the educational administrator.
