For students attending the Master's Programme in Nutrition Science Regulations and guidelines
Here you can find information regarding some regulations and guidelines when you study at KI and at the Master's Programme in Nutrition Science.
Compulsory attendance at roll-call
Students must take steps to find out when and where the roll-call for their course is due to take place. A student who is absent without having first requested and been granted an exemption will forfeit his or her place on the course. An exemption can be granted by the person responsible for the course.
Following roll-call, registration in LADOK takes place. The registration is transferred directly to the Central Student Welfare Committee (CSN). Do not forget to contact a study adviser to notify an interruption of studies. Note that special rules apply if you request a leave of absence during the first semester.
Student rights and responsibilities
On the general KI page about student rights you can read more about what rights and obligations you have as a student. You can for example find information on admission, examination, exam writing and equality.
The student ombudsman is an independent office, employed by the student unions, to whom you may turn with matters relating to you as a student, such as if you feel unfairly treated by someone at KI or have problems in your dealings with other students or members of staff.
Pledge of confidentiality
Karolinska Institutet's study advisors are bound by a pledge of confidentiality in accordance with chapter 7, section 9 of the Secrecy Act, and on no condition will disclose information about a student's personal circumstances to a third party without the student's explicit consent.
Language of instruction
Instruction and exams are in English.
Accreditation of previous studies
If you have satisfactorily completed certain undergraduate university studies, you may be given credits for them. You are also entitled to credits for other studies if the nature and extent of the knowledge and skills for which you are claiming credits are such that they are equivalent to the education for which they are intended to be credited. You may also receive credits for knowledge and skills that you have acquired in the course of employment. An application for credits should be submitted as soon as you have been admitted to the programme.
Accreditation is reviewed by an examiner where a whole course or components of a course are involved. Accreditation is reviewed by the programme director for major parts of the programme in connection with admission to a later part or in the case of studies abroad where several courses are involved and also in connection with accreditation of a course as an optional course.
You should contact the programme director regarding accreditation.
Interruption during semester 1
An interruption of studies during this semester will be granted only it is attributable to an acute prolonged illness or other important reasons arising after you have been admitted to the programme. No other reason will be accepted.
Admission requirements to a higher semester
For entry to semester 2 (the degree project), a pass must be obtained for two of the four courses on semester 1 (the first and the third course).
