The Information Days are intended to welcome master's degree students to Linköping University and provide practical information about your studies and your facility at LiU. How the days are run and what activities are planned can differ depending on which faculty you belong to, but you can count on receiving important information and handouts regarding your studies and other practical issues.
Information Days 2020
17 August - Faculty of Arts and Sciences & Faculty of Educational Sciences
26 August - Faculty of Science and Engineering & Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences
Welcome Fair (cancelled)
After your Information Day you are invited to attend the Welcome Fair, where new international students are invited to get to know the support and services LiU offers, such as the Library, Student Health Services, the International Office, etc. You can meet representatives from some of the student association and the student unions. There will also be companies and organisations of interest to new students represented at the fair.
Welcome fair is very social and festive, with time to mingle and to try Swedish "fika" (the Swedish tradition of having coffee/tea and snack break).
Welcome Fair 2020: Due to the coronavirus situation, the Welcome Fair in August has been cancelled.
Each programme has specific orientation information you need to know about your programme and starting your studies.
Mandatory roll call & first day of class
When you start a new master’s programme at Linköping University you must attend the compulsory roll call for your programme. If you are unable to attend, you must inform your Faculty coordinator in advance - otherwise, you will lose your place on your programme. See your programme admitted web page for details.
You can find your programme admitted web page via the drop-down menu on the Admitted Student Web: liu.se/admitted
LiU looks forward to welcoming you to our campuses and helping you settle into a new life in Sweden!
