Our Story – watch the film that mirrors our identity

“Linköping University was born in an era of opportunity. Decades of industrial prosperity had delivered a welfare state and social model that were admired worldwide. Further success beckoned – provided Sweden could produce enough well-educated people to spearhead its workforce. Assisted by generous state-funded student loans, the next generation was ready to sign up en masse for higher education.”

LiU statistics

The university in Linköping opened in 1975, as the sixth in Sweden. Its activities have grown since then, and Linköping University, LiU, has expanded to both Norrköping and Stockholm. We are 32,000 students and 4,000 co-workers on four campuses.

Research, education, collaboration

Our main activities are:

We are an independent government agency. This means that we are free to determine which programmes and courses we offer, and how they are structured. For this reason, educational programmes and courses with the same name can differ between institutions of higher education.

Introduction day for new co-workers

We arrange introduction days for new co-workers twice a year. This is an opportunity to learn more about LiU’s overall strategic initiatives, the world around us, the world within, and our core activities: undergraduate education and research.
