Meet the Nutrition MSc Class 2020

Nutrition MSc class profile:

It’s been 2 months now since the masters course started and with 2 modules down there’s only 2 to go as well as the thesis. I have to say that when I walked into this class I was amazed by the diversity of people and the vast array of countries that we all come from including: Colombia, Greece, Rwanda, Ethiopia and more. It has to be known that everyone in the class is awesome and a friendly bunch, we are around 37 students and I will present most of them below…

Applications to Karolinska Institutet are now open, and if you are planning on applying for Nutrition or another global master’s programme, you most likely will not be disappointed by the diversity of cultures represented. This was one of the reasons why I wanted to be part of this global master’s programme, as I always love to meet new  people from all over the World.

I am from Scotland and have come to Stockholm to study Nutrition Science MSc at Karolinska. I am a blogger for this course and am interested in many areas of Nutrition including ways to reduce childhood obesity and improve adolescent mental health. I love to travel, meet new people, play sport, keep healthy, watch films and listen to jazz music. I also enjoy trying food from around the World and am always searching for the best food out there!
