Finally time for an Open House in Flemingsberg
On March 29 it’s time for an Open house in Flemingsberg for the first time since 2019. Then the whole campus opens up, with Open House also at Karolinska Institutet, Swedish Red Cross University, Södertörn University and Stockholm University College of Music Education (SMI). This is a great chance for prospective students to visit several universities and schools on the same day.
An Open House is an opportunity for curious prospective students to get a feel for the campus environment. Both, teachers, student counselors, and students will be on hand to answer questions from visitors. And those who are curious about what you actually learn at KTH can check out cool student projects and test technology.
An Open House in Flemingsberg is a chance to show that KTH exists in other places than in Valhallavägen – and why. A significant part of the research and education available at KTH's campus in Flemingsberg is about finding new, smarter solutions to global societal challenges in, for example, health, an aging population, energy, and sustainable working life. Here there is a strong connection to research and business – with, for example, the proximity to Karolinska Institutet and Huddinge Hospital.
“Students who choose KTH's program in Flemingsberg have usually not considered that KTH is located in places other than the central campus, but feel very comfortable in the nice building with really good infrastructure and a pleasant atmosphere,” says Sebastiaan Meijer, professor and deputy head of school.
“Our courses attract students from many different backgrounds and with broad curiosity.”
Campus Flemingsberg is unique for its mix of higher education, research, knowledge-intensive companies, and healthcare. Not only KTH has education here – there are also Södertörn University, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm University College of Music Education, and Swedish Red Cross University, in addition to an art school, a high school, and a university hospital. Everything within walking distance. A joint Open House for several higher education institutions not only increases the community – it is practical for the visitors. Those who have not made their choice for the autumn yet can easily visit several universities in one and the same afternoon.
