Following the Arrival Days each Faculty offers an Orientation Programme (one or two days) for all their new students. During these days LiU will welcome you officially and you will get important study related information as well as practical information that will help you settle in Linköping and Sweden, and facilitate finding your way around LiU.
You will meet the international coordinators from IO and your Faculty coordinators, as well as representatives from the student associations, who will introduce you to campus and studentlife.
Attending the Orientation Programme is mandatory and will ensure you get
the best possible start as a new LiU student.
For students attending the Swedish intensive course starting on 6 August a brief welcome session will be held in connection to the course introduction, but you are still expected to attend the main Orientation Programme according to below dates.
