Linköping University will open this autumn, in stages. The Swedish government announced at a press conference on Friday afternoon, 29 May, that institutions of higher education will return to normal operation this autumn.
It’s official: the Swedish government has appointed Jan-Ingvar Jönsson as vice-chancellor of Linköping University. His term of office will begin on 1 July 2020.
Despite a need to socially distance ourselves, LiU and the International Office still want to give you a joyful farewell and we therefore invite all departing international students to join our Digital Farewell Mingle. Take part of speeches, music and competitions (with some very nice prizes!).
When: 27 May
From June 1st, the design of LiU's degree certificates will be changed, with a new background and a new front page.
Due to the coronavirus, the festive event Farewell Ceremony organised by the International Office was cancelled. Watch the congratulation speech from LiU¿s Vice-Chancellor Helen Dannetun and take part in the digital farewell event on May 27.
LiU has now changed the guidelines for exams that are reconfigured to exams taken remotely. At least five working days before the exam, the examiner is to provide information about which technical aids are permitted. The new guidelines do not allow students to post-register for an exam after the registration deadline.
A working group has started to work with introducing a university-wide digital system to manage doctoral students’ individual study plans. The system, eISP, is to be introduced in three pilot departments during the autumn of 2020, and throughout LiU in 2021.
When healthcare is given priority, other goods get stuck in transport. At the same time, we have to be extra conscientious about hygiene, while folk are returning to campus in increasing numbers. The result – shortages of consumables, and closed toilets.
Try to make your life similar to your life before distance mode. Set an alarm clock, go for a bike ride, and distinguish between study and leisure.
