Welcome to International Office!

International Office at Linköping University is a part of the central administration. Our mission is to promote and facilitate international cooperation with partner universities and prospective partners. International Office is a resource for all incoming students, especially at the beginning of their stay.

Depending on your needs you will find more detailed information in the left-hand menu and below.

For partner universities

International Relations Team handles questions regarding exchange agreements.

International training for LiU staff and teachers

LiU employees have the opportunity to do international training abroad and can apply for both:
Travel grants within Europe
Travel grants outside of Europe 

Employees interested in a broader cooperation with universities, and perhaps also with companies and organisations abroad can read more about EU's Erasmus+ programme.

LiU student exchanges cancelled

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs has advised against unnecessary travel until (at least) 15 June. We do not know what will happen after this. For this reason, LiU has decided to cancel all student exchanges for LiU students during the autumn term of 2020.

Read the news and the decision here.


UK left EU on 31 January, after the Withdrawl Agreement was accepted in the EU Parlament. A transition period until 31 December 2020 will follow, where the UK and EU will negotiate the terms of cooperation, such as trade agreements, fishing and, student exchange, starting from 1 January 2021.

What will happen to the Erasmus+ programme?

For EU universities cooperating with UK universities it will continue pretty much as usual throughout 2020. Any funding won in the Erasmus+ call 2020-2022 can be used up until the end of this project, 31 May 2022. Ongoing Strategic Partnerships with organisations in the UK can be completed.

Starting 1 June 2021, a new Erasmus+ framework will start, 2021-2027. It is not clear if the UK will participate.


The International Office is located in Studenthuset, Campus Valla, and in Kåkenhus office 2342 on Campus Norrköping.
