• Congratulations to the newly elected DSA Board and Representatives

    On October 16th during the Annual DSA General Meeting, a new DSA Board was elected as well as new representatives for Departments, Research Schools, Doctoral Programs and Central Positions! We congratulate all newly elected DSA Board members and Representatives who will take over at the beginning of 2022. Here is the full list of elected members:

  • Apply for a Central Position within KI

    Student representation at KI’s central level is super important to make sure that the voice of doctoral students is heard in KI’s highest decision-making bodies. These are bodies that shape KI’s vision, strategy, investments, recruitment, and work environment. Many of these positions require that you are proficient in Swedish as this is KI’s working language according to the law (for more information on the language requirements check the description for each position).  

  • Department doctoral representatives

    Departmental Student Representatives can have a wide variety of responsibilities, depending on the department’s needs and culture. Generally, your duties will include improving education and the work environment for students in your department. Specifically, you will be asked to participate in the admission seminars, establishment of new doctoral positions and have close contact with the study director. In some departments, you might be invited to the discussions regarding the green light applications for PIs. Some Departmental Representatives also choose to organize socials events to improve the communication between all students of the department. You can also opt for additional roles like department council and support the Prefekt if you choose to.
