Before arrival for exchange studies

You need to prepare several things before you arrive in Sweden for your exchange studies. Here you will find information about accommodation, finances and residence permits, as well as other useful information.

Once you have been admitted to Linköping University (LiU) there are some things to prepare before departure. LiU recommend you arrive in time for LiU's welcome period and your exchange orientation. You will receive important information about LiU and your studies during your orientation programme. When making travel arrangements, plan your trip so you arrive on one of LiU's arrival days. Detailed information is provided in the Upon Arrival section.

If you are interested in having a peer student, you can sign up to the Peer Programme before your arrival. Students at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences will be assigned a peer student through the faculty, but can of course also sign up for the Peer Programme.
