Introduction for global programme students

Introduction week

All international and Swedish students taking the Global Master's and Bachelor's Programmes are invited to our Introduction Week on 26-30 August 2019, containting important arrival and preparatory information for your coming life in Stockholm and studies at Karolinska Institutet.

The five-day programme begins with a basic introduction course to the Swedish language (for international students). If you cannot attend this first Swedish course, you can join an evening course during your first semester.

Students who do not wish to take the Swedish course are encouraged to join the activities on Thursday and Friday.
