Become a student representative

To become a student representative is amongst the most fun and giving things to do while studying. As a student representative you speak for the students against Karolinska Institutet (KI), to give our perspective and to create a better university for us all.

MF has student representatives in almost all parts of KI. From section members who represent you in committees at program level to our centrally appointed representatives who represent all students and MF in KI’s working groups, councils, committees and KI’s board Konsistoriet.

Student representation can seem scary at first, but it doesn’t have to be at all scary or hard! You soon realize that the teachers and staff at KI really listen to what you have to say. You learn incredibly much and gain experiences that you’ll benefit from later on in life.

The easiest way to take a first step and learn more about this is to contact and explore your section. Through your section you can find out more and get involved and become a student representative in positions that affect your own programme. You can also email [email protected] to find out more!

Become a student representative and affect yours and all other students’ education at Karolinska Institutet!

About educational committees and department representatives

Educational committees have the overall responsibility for implementing and coordinating a department’s educational responsibilities.

Department representatives are chosen to cover other groupings and assignments that may exist at a department. Department representatives can also represent in the educational committees if needed  in the absence of other student representatives.

Groups and assignments vary a great deal between different departments. Do you want to know what is needed as a representative at a department? Then you can contact the department initially and also our chairperson of the Education Council at [email protected]skaforeningen.se or KI at [email protected]. Maybe there is something you want to contribute to! All students at KI who are members of MF can become student representatives!
