Before arrival

You need to prepare some things before you arrive in Sweden. Here you will find information about accommodation, finances and residence permits. If you are bringing your family, you will find useful information under “Family and schools”. 


Once you have been admitted to Linköpings University there are many things to prepare before departure. On these pages we have gathered useful information that will help you prepare for your arrival in Sweden.

We would also advice you to read through our Guides for international students for additional information.
