Introduction Program for international staff

Welcome as a member of staff at Linköping University! This introduction program is for anyone who is here for 6 months or longer and will help you prepare for your stay in Sweden and at Linköping University. Even if you already have been with LiU for a while, the information here can be very useful. 

This part of the introduction program is digital and consists of episodes from the Podcast “Work at LiU” and short films. You can go through these at your convenience before you arrive in Sweden. The introduction program ends when you arrive in Sweden and have attended the Welcome Fair for International Staff.
