Faculty of Educational Sciences

Dear Exchange Students!

Welcome to the Faculty of Educational Sciences.

If you have academic questions e.g. regarding courses, course changes, certificates, extending your stay, etc. you are most welcome to visit us at the Exchange Student Help Desk in Zenit building on Mondays and Wednesdays 12.15-13.15, or in Norrköping, Kåkenhus first Friday 12.00-13.00 each month. Changes in the opening hours will be posted under "Contact us" in the left menu.

You are also welcome to contact us at international@ffk.liu.se.


Learning Agreement & Changes to Learning Agreement

If you have not arranged this before, hand in your Learning Agreement to us upon arrival, signed by yourself and your home university. We will sign it, give it back to you so you can send it to your home university. If you change a course, we will sign your Changes to Learning Agreement if your home university needs it.


Other documents

If you need signatures on other documents from your home university, or you need a Certificate of Arrival/Attendance/Departure, you can either send us an e-mail or come to the Exchange Student Help Desk.

Changing (adding/dropping) a course

In case you want to change a course, please come and see us at the Exchange Student Help Desk, or send us an e-mail and we will help you. Please note that adding a course is only possible if you fulfill the requirements for the course, and there are places left. For courses that are full we keep a waiting list, and will inform students if they are accepted into the course. You have to contact us at least 2 weeks before the course starts, preferably earlier.

To attend a course that you have not been admitted to is not acceptable. A permission from the teacher of the course will not guarantee you a spot in the course if the course is full or you do not fulfill the requirements.

Add a course from another faculty

Under certain circumstances students may take one course (7.5 ECTS) from the Faculty of Science and Engineering, Faculty of Arts and Sciences, or the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences.

If you wish to take a course from another faculty please send an e-mail with the name and code of the course to international@ffk.liu.se or visit us at the Exchange Student Help Desk.


Remember to register for each course in the Student Portal as soon as the course starts. Otherwise you will not be able to get a grade for the course even if you pass the exam.



Also remember to register for written exams in the Student Portal at least 10 days before the exam. Read more in the Students' Examination Guide: http://www.student.liu.se/tenta/regler?l=en



The schedules for all courses can be found in Time Edit, Lisam, or on the course home page. The schedule should be available at least two weeks before the start of the course. If you cannot find it, please contact the teacher of the course. Also see the course home pages for information.

For students from other faculties

Students from the Faculty of Science and Engineering, Faculty of Arts and Sciences, or Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences who wish to take one course (7.5 ECTS) from the Faculty of Educational Sciences should check that they fulfill the prerequisites for the courses, send an e-mail to international@ffk.liu.se with documents supporting that you fulfill the requirements.
