Gender Studies, Master's Programme - information for admitted students

It is our great pleasure to congratulate you on having been accepted to our master's programme at Linköping University (LiU). Due to the Covid-19 situation, the face-to-face week 30 August - 3 September will be carried out online.

There are a few important activities and dates to keep in mind:

Roll call and programme start

On August 3 you will receive an e-mail about the mandatory virtual roll-call to which you must respond by e-mail no later than 15:00 (CET) 9 August. If you do not answer the roll call you will lose your place.

The programme starts on Monday 23 August with the first course 757A21: Introduction to Studies of Intersectional Gender at Advanced Level.

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 account by 1 November 2021.

In the middle of July, you will receive more detailed information about both the programme and the first course (teaching, course literature, examination). The schedule for all autumn courses will be available on this link from July 15

Please contact course coordinator Marietta Radomska, if you have any questions.

We use Zoom for the online activities. Here you can find more information about Zoom:

If you want to decline your offer

While we really want all of our admitted students to choose Linköping University, it can happen that you decide to attend elsewhere. If this is the case it is very important that you let us know you won’t be attending the programme as soon as possible, by declining your offer at You do this by logging into your account and following the instructions under the 'Applications' tab. This might free up your place to someone on the waiting list.


LiU will be sending out an email series to all students admitted to an international programme at LiU in the lead up to the autumn semester with details about tuition fees, scholarships, and other important steps to consider if you are an international student. The Admitted students page is also a hub of information. Swedish students may find Antagen more relevant.

We welcome you again to our exciting intellectual environment and challenging programme. We are looking forward to meeting you virtually in August!
