Linköping University Summer Academy

A four-week credit-bearing programme in Linköping,  Sweden – Scandinavia

In 2016, Linköping University (LiU) launched its first International Summer Academy. More than 80% of the students who participated in the 2016 student survey stated they would recommend the LiU Summer Academy to fellow students.

This experience gives international students an opportunity to study abroad for one month. They have several high-quality courses to choose from and will gain cultural insights together with other international students from all over the world. All courses are taught in English and are full-time.

Linköping in southern Sweden is one of Sweden’s fastest growing cities, with approximately 150,000 inhabitants. High world-class technology, an innovative university and lively trade characterise the city. Linköping’s industry, municipality and the university collaborate closely. Linköping is situated in an inviting landscape of beautiful natural surroundings, and here history and tradition meet creativity and innovation.
