Arrival activities for international degree students

LiU welcomes new international degree students before your programmes start with a welcome period full of information and social activities. We want you to get the best possible start for your stay in Sweden and to meet new friends right away. Try to arrive before your studies start to make the most of this welcome period.

Students during Information Day

Information Days for master’s degree students

Your faculty's Information Day at the beginning of the autumn semester* is a great way to get started as a new student at LiU. The Information Days are intended to welcome you to LiU and provide practical information about your studies and the facilities at LiU. How the day or days work depends on your faculty. You will receive important information and handouts regarding your studies and other practical issues. You only need to attend the Information Days for your faculty. 

Important note: 

Roll call for master’s students

When you start a new master’s programme at Linköping University you must also attend a compulsory roll call. Dates for these are available on your programmes admitted information page. If you are unable to attend, you must inform your Faculty coordinator in advance - otherwise, you will lose your place on your programme.

Welcome Fair

After the Information Day you are invited to attend a Welcome Fair where you will meet various on-campus services, and get to mingle with fellow students. At our Welcome Fair all new international students will get to know the support and services LiU offers, such as the Library, Student Health Services and Career Services. You will also meet representatives from some of the student associations, the student unions and representatives from the Faculties.


You can ask questions to the local Police and find out what there is to do in Linköping and surrounding areas from the company who run Visit Linköping
Studentbostäder will also be present and inform about what accommodation services they offer students. There will be time to mingle and to try Swedish "fika" (the Swedish tradition of having coffee/tea and cake break) - and take part in our quiz.

The Welcome Fair date will be confirmed closer to the start of autumn semester 2018.

Social Activities

The IO organises social activities together with the student associations ESN Linköping and ISA Linköping. More information can be found on the Welcome activities web page (linked to below).

More details

Each programme has specific information about your Information Day, welcome fair and roll call for your programme, that you can find on your programme specific admitted web page via a drop-down menu on Admitted to LiU that will be live from 6 April 2018.
