Meet the bloggers

Every year Karolinska Institutet recruits Digital Ambassadors – students who blog and represent the university online.

There are students from each of the eight Global Master’s programmes and a variety of genders and nationalities.

They write about their studies, careers, life in general and being new in Stockholm and Sweden. They can also answer your questions if you send them an email.
