Many students contact the faculty to enquire about an elective period with us. We are sorry, but due to a shortage of clinical placements, the faculty can only offer study periods for students from partner universities within the relevant subject area.

The County Council of Östergötland can sometimes offer medical students an elective placement as a free-mover student. You need to have C 1-level Swedish at the time of application. This is their website, where more information can be found. It has to be added that the number of places is limited. If you are selected, you will also be admitted to Linköping University.

It is not possible to come as an Erasmus placement student.

For students from other programmes, such as within nursing, occupational therapy and physiotherapy, we regret to inform you that due to a shortage of clinical placements, we are unable to receive students, neither as free-movers nor as Erasmus placement students.
