Conditionally admitted students
If you are conditionally admitted you must upload your degree certificate and transcript of your last semester(s) both in original language and with an English translation to your Universityadmissions.se account by
1 November 2021.
If you applied to the second round for autumn or spring semester, you must reply to your first Notification of Selection Results in order to keep the places you've been offered, or to remain on the reserve/waiting list for the second selection round.
For the second Notification, you don't need to reply to courses you wish to keep, but should decline those courses you aren't planning on attending. This makes those places available for students on the waiting list.
Applicants admitted to the first round do not have to reply to their offer.
What happens now? Well, let the fun and learning begin! Welcome to LiU & Sweden!
As vice-chancellor, I am truly delighted when throngs of students with different backgrounds, expectations and hopes are teeming on campus. Studying at university may be the best time of one’s life. You make lifetime friends and acquire knowledge that brings development and growth.
The corona pandemic has affected our teaching, and more of it is conducted using remote methods. This is a challenge for both students and teachers, but we have at the same time learnt a great deal. The teaching is different, not poorer, and the way in which we experience human contact comes in new forms. So, independently of how the pandemic has developed when you read these words, I know that all of our educational programmes and courses are of high quality and can help you on the pathway to an exciting future.
I hope to meet you among the teeming students on campus.
Jan-Ingvar Jönsson, Vice-Chancellor
If you have been admitted to full-time studies at LiU, you will have to study at least 40 hours per week. Studying in a foreign country will mean that there are expectations that you may not be used to. Make sure you understand what is expected in Sweden and at LiU by watching this film.
Once you have been admitted to Linköping University (LiU), there are many things to prepare for before departure whether you are relocating from overseas, across the border or from another province in Sweden.
