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.

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!
