Code of conduct for students

KTH’s goal is to offer you as a student a good education, as well as a good study environment from which you can obtain useful knowledge and experience for your professional life. KTH therefore considers it of the utmost importance that you, during your studies, maintain a professional attitude to your studies, fellow students, teachers and other staff at KTH.

The Code of conduct for students clarifies some of the expectations of you as a student at KTH.

As a student at KTH, I agree to uphold the following:

  • I consider all people to be of equal value. All students and staff at KTH have the same rights, opportunities and obligations, regardless of sex, transgender identity or expression, ethnicity, religion or other belief, disability, sexual orientation or age.
  • Equal treatment at KTH implies a respectful and inclusive work and study environment free from harassment, sexual harassment, discrimination and offensive behaviour. I, like every student and employee, have a responsibility to treat others with respect in all meetings and to promote a secure and prejudice-free study and work environment.
  • I will always lead by example and maintain a professional approach to all meetings and in all my communication. I treat all students, staff and other partners with respect and consideration, irrespective of their social background, sex, transgender, identity or expression, ethniticy, religion or other belief, disability, sexual orientation or age.
  • I am aware that discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment and victimisation, as well as any contravention of KTH's core values and guidelines, may be ground for disciplinary action.
