Latest update: 19 August 2022
It is our pleasure to congratulate you on having been admitted to our Applied Ethology and Animal Biology Master’s programme. We are confident that it will be important for your professional career and provide you with interesting challenges and personal development. Our ambition is to educate advanced professionals for an international market. Currently we are planning the autumn semester and are looking forward to welcoming you here in August.
The way of studying here at Linköping University (LiU) might differ from what you are used to. Besides lectures and laboratory work, we put a large emphasis on you being active in projects, writing papers, essays and reports and presenting the results of minor research tasks. Does this sound demanding? You are absolutely right – it is! We take studies very seriously and want your time with us to be as meaningful as possible. But we also guarantee that this will not prevent you from having a lot of fun and enjoying interesting experiences during your time in Linköping.
