Tox Master student blogs
The blogs are for prospective students who want an idea of what studying at KI is like. The bloggers are all current or former students at the Tox Master’s Programme, so you can see what student life is like through the eyes of our students!
All blogs from KI students are found at studentblogs.ki.se. This is also where you can find the current Tox Master digital ambassadors.
My name is Mina and I was born in Skopje, North Macedonia, but I have been living in Sweden for more or less half of my life. I’ve lived in Gothenburg for the majority of this time and moved to Stockholm 3 years ago to do my bachelor’s in biomedicine here at Karolinska Institutet (KI). Currently I‘m studying the Master’s Programme in Toxicology and I’m the new blogger for the programme.

Hi! I’m Lianne from Ireland and England, currently studying the Master’s Programme in Toxicology at KI. Before coming to Sweden I was living in The Netherlands where I completed my bachelor’s degree in natural sciences. I looked forward to coming to Sweden for the nature and happened to stumble across Karolinska Institutet! It sounded very appealing since the university is specialised in life sciences with a focus on human health. I thought it would be a great place to do my master’s degree and I couldn’t be happier to be studying here.
