Sign up to the Doctoral programme in health care science

Application and admission to doctoral courses

Application to courses is made directly in the Course catalogue at Karolinska Institutet. The available courses on doctoral level are announced once per semester. The catalogue for courses is published on around April 15 respectively October 15 and is open for application during one month.

After the application period is closed the applicant can only be admitted according to availability. A late application is made directly to the programme coordinator and course organizer.
KI's courses are open for registered doctoral students at all universities and colleges. If space allows, other applicants may also be accepted.

Formal note about admission (or not) is emailed to the applicants within a month after the application time is closed. If you are not admitted, you will be asked for interest to be on the waiting list. The applicant needs to confirm participation by a form signed by the applicant and his/hers supervisor.

Course catalogue

All syllabi for courses at doctoral level at KI are collected in the KIWAS database.

Application and participation in the seminars, workshops etc.

Application for participation is done via e-mail according to instructions in the attached flyer.

The attendance of each individual participant is of greatest importance to the other participants and to the full layout of the workshop or seminar. This means that if you confirm your participation, we expect you to attend the entire workshop, alternatively the entire seminar.

If nothing else is stated, priority is given to registered PhD students. If space allows, other applicants may also be accepted.
Confirmation and additional information about the activity/event is emailed to the participants.

Expression of interest

As a doctoral student you can register your interest in one or more doctoral programme and thus obtain information on the courses and activities that are arranged. An expression of interest is submitted when you apply for admission to doctoral education, or at any time during the education by sending an email to the programme. This means that you will receive information about the programme's courses and activities. You may choose from what is offered, but you do not commit to participate in any activity, nor are you guaranteed admission to any of the courses organized within the framework of the programme.
