Zoom Café every Wednesday 11.00-12.00

We're offering an informal meeting point over Zoom. We digitally meet over a cup of coffee or tea and every week we focus on different themes or topics. We always end the session with a nice conversation about everyday life.

International Office Wellness Challenge

In times like these, it’s tough to stay active! That’s why we at LiU International Office have searched far and wide for ways to make life just a little more exciting. Not only do you get a chance to develop (very niched) skills, discover the city of Linköping and do things you never thought you’d try before, but you might even win some awesome prices while doing it!

The challenge goes live on 27 April and ends on 31 May. Check out our Facebook group for more info, https://www.facebook.com/groups/2281776188791709/

Remember to stay at home if sick, keep distance and wash your hands properly!

May the best student win!


Book club

Join our book club!

Few things are cosier than curling up with a book and a cup of tea, but do you find that after finishing a book you often miss having someone to talk to about it? The International Office is inviting you to take part in our book club. 

The next digital book club is held 22 June at 16:30. The book in focus is Anne of Green Gables written by L.M. Montgomery. You can purchase the e-book here.

Interested? Please send an email to johanna.gistvik@liu.se to register or ask any questions. Please note that we ask you to register only so we know who to send the meeting link to.


Kahoot and coffee

More information will be published later.
