Moving to study in another country requires preparation, which at first can seem like a daunting task. The Preparation Checklist will help you keep track on what to do before your arrival in Linköping (to be published in spring 2019).

Welcome and orientation

In order to help you settle into life at LiU Summer Academy, a welcome and orientation morning will be held in the beginning of the week before the course period starts. During this orientation you will receive both practical and academic information. When arriving in Linköping, you will receive the keys to your accommodation as well as some information before you are taken to your housing.

Pick-up service

Linköping University provides a shuttle bus pick-up service when arriving in Linköping (at the airport, train or bus station) on 28 June. The timetable for the shuttle bus can later be found here. (The timetable also show the way you walk from the train station to the bus station, where the pick-up will be located. If you arrive to the Linköping airport the bus pick-up spot is right outside the terminal.)

If you choose to go directly to the registration building at campus Valla (Zenit) or will arrive on another time than is mentioned above, you must get to Zenit by yourself.
