Exchange students are selected by their home universities. For information about exchange programmes, agreements, admissions, and applications, please contact the international coordinator at your home university.
Exchange students do not pay tuition fees to Linköping University (LiU).
When applying to study at LiU, you can also apply for accommodation and a beginner’s course in Swedish.
Students from outside of the European Union must take courses of at least 30 ECTS per semester, which corresponds to full‑time study. Studying 30 ECTS per semester is one of the requirements for being granted a residence permit by the Swedish Migration Board.
Courses are intended for exchange students who have completed at least one year of study at their home university. If you are applying to the Faculty of Science and Engineering you must have completed two years of study at your home university.
Exchange students cannot normally combine courses to obtain a final degree at LiU.
