What to remember when applying to study at the Karolinska Institutet…

Applying to study overseas can be a little overwhelming. Having gone through the process before here are the websites and blogs that I recommend you look at.


  1. Have a look at http://ki.se/en/education/admissions-to-global-bachelors-programmes to find out about the different Masters programme at Karolinska.
  2. Go to https://studyinsweden.se/how-to-apply/ and follow the step by step instructions. The website is very easy to use and provides a huge amount of information from applications, to visas and scholarships.
  3. All applications need to be completed through https://www.universityadmissions.se/intl/start, you can select up to 5 different programmes (and different universities).
  4. Look at potential scholarships. I can’t stress this point enough, as a non-European student the cost of living in Stockholm is huge and I would not be here without a scholarship!

I would recommend reading Alexandra’s blog post on scholarships https://studentblogski.wordpress.com/2014/02/14/scholarship-applications/.

Another post I found useful was Preethi’s blog about what to do after you have applied https://studentblogski.wordpress.com/2014/01/21/after-application-2/

  1. Double check that you have filled out all the documents (and that you have done this well before the deadline!). An awesome motivation letter or letter of recommendation doesn’t hurt.

Good luck!
