STOCKHOLM AND SWEDEN Sweden is one of the safest countries in the world and nearly 90% of the population speaks English. Most of Sweden has a temperate climate with four distinct seasons. The winters can get cold, but the summers equally beautiful and warm. Stockholm, where Karolinska Institutet is located, is the capital of Sweden and offers a rich history, a bustling cultural life and a thriving business sector, surrounded by plenty of green space and blue water. Stockholm is the largest university city in the Nordic countries and the home of approximately 80 000 students, of which 5 000 are international students.

COST OF LIVING IN STOCKHOLM

TWO CAMPUSES, ONE UNIVERSITY Education and research at Karolinska Institutet is mainly conducted on two campuses: the northern Campus Solna and the southern Campus Huddinge. Karolinska Institutet also has an established cooperation with several hospitals in and around Stockholm city.

BIOENTREPRENEURSHIP A new discipline in demand

B

ioentrepreneurship is a field of study which combines social sciences, biomedicine, natural sciences and technology with innovation processes. The programme focuses on strategic and operative issues in the life science industry, and will give you a deeper understanding of the processes and strategies needed to lead a successful project or company in this knowledge-intensive sector. A key concept within this programme is the application of knowledge in a business setting. Therefore, the courses use authentic cases to learn from and many of the lecturers are experienced business leaders who share their knowledge and expertise with their students. The programme also includes two internship periods that will give you valuable practical knowledge and insights as well as a professional network that will provide a head start in your future career.

GLOBAL HEALTH Health challenges have no borders

G

lobal health combines knowledge and expertise from various disciplines including public health, epidemiology, biostatistics, health economics, sociology, anthropology, and environmental and political sciences. The subject area provides a platform for research, education and information about the health challenges the world is facing, particularly population groups burdened by poverty. The programme at Karolinska Institutet follows this approach and focuses on how research can contribute to meet these challenges. As the requirement for knowledge on global health has increased in many working environments, this master’s programme will not only help graduates to open doors internationally, it will also provide them with the skills needed to work at local level. Global health is a strong research field at Karolinska Institutet, and students in the programme will early on be involved and collaborating face-to-face with researchers from various research groups. Although students may come from a variety of countries and professional backgrounds, they all have one thing in common: a drive and passion for the subject area of study and the motivation to work towards making a difference in reducing the global burden of diseases, injuries, and illhealth. Graduates can expect careers in both the public and private sectors, as well as in non-governmental organisations and academic institutions.

SARAH KHALID KHAN, GRADUATE 2016 FROM PAKISTAN

I have had the chance to interact with people from all over the world which is an experience in itself. The teachers have been very helpful in opening the portal to the global health to us. I have respect for them for being so patient and always open to questions and comments.
