For partner universities

The degree of internationalisation within undergraduate education has increased dramatically during recent years: not only within the framework of the European Union but also in the form of cooperation and exchanges with universities in all other parts of the world. This is particularly true for Linköping University.

The following information is intended for student exchange coordinators at LiU's partner institutions. Exchange students, master's students and free-mover students should refer to the Studies in English section for all necessary information about studies in English at LiU.
