Checklist for when leaving Karolinska Institutet
Graduating soon and needing to wrap things up at Karolinska Institutet and in Stockholm? Follow the checklist on this page.
Keep track of KI accounts and cards about to run out
Email and PingPong
Your email and PingPong accounts will be active for 6 months after you have completed your studies. Make sure that important PingPong documents are downloaded to your harddrive and that important emails are forwarded to your new address before this time. If you would like to transfer your whole inbox with IMAP or POP, you can read more on the link below. After the 6 months are up you will not be able to retrieve any documents or emails.
Student access card/KIcard
Your student access card is valid for as long as you are a student at Karolinska Institutet. The expiry date is stated on the card. Cards that are no longer used must be returned to the library, in accordance with the KIcard-agreement.
University Library - physical and electronic
Visiting researchers/students are granted a library card during the time they attend a Swedish university. If you belong to this group, your card will cease to be valid when your studies at Karolinska Institutet are finished. If you are staying in Sweden after your studies finish and have a valid Swedish ID card, you may extend the validity of your library card on a year-by-year basis.
Remote access to the library services is also limited to when you are a student at Karolinska Institutet. This means that you cannot access articles and LADOK on the university library webpages outside of the Karolinska Institutet network.
Close your bank account
Remember to close your bank account before you leave, or unneccessary fees may incur.
You do this by visiting your local branch in person.
