Confirming your place on the programme
All our international degree programmes have mandatory roll calls for all admitted students, regardless of nationality. The roll call is when we read aloud the names of all admitted students on a list to check whether they are present By attending the mandatory roll call you confirm your place on your programme. If you fail to attend the roll call without prior authorization, you will lose your place on the programme. The time and place of your roll call can be found on the programme specific page for admitted students. This page can be found via a link on the general Admitted pages.
We suggest you have a look at the short video below about the roll call to make sure you understand the importance of being present. Your courses will begin on the same day as the roll call or shortly after.
If you are unable to commence your studies at LiU you can apply for a refund as long as you do so by 23:59 CET the day before the roll call. Any requests for a refund received on or after the day of the roll call will most likely be rejected.
If there are extraordinary circumstances that prevent you from attending the mandatory roll call you may be able to get an exemption. Exemptions are granted on an individual basis. You must be able to prove these circumstances in writing when applying for an exemption. To apply for an exemption you need to use the application form which will be displayed on this page from 8 August 2023. Before this date no decisions on exemptions will be made. If you have filled in the form correctly you can expect your application to be processed within a few days.
