What are Digital Ambassadors?

Digital ambassadors represent Karolinska Institutet in social media and somethimes also IRL at events. Their main assignment is to share their study experience.

Every year, the education support office recruit so called 'digital ambassadors' - students who blog and represent Karolinska Institutet. We try to get students from each of the seven Global Master's Programmes, and a variety of genders and nationalities.

The digital ambassadors tell about their studies, life in general and being new in Stockholm and Sweden. They also answer questions based on their personal experiencesI.

When they are not blogging, vlogging, sharing, instagramming and periscoping, they also do smaller jobs as representatives for KI or their programme at educational fairs and other events. Finally, they show let prospective students follow them around for a day, so they can see what it's like studying at KI. We call that to shadow a student.
