About Linköping University

Linköping University (LiU) is one of Sweden’s larger academic institutions and among those that offer the largest number of professional degree programmes, in fields such as medicine, education, business, economics and engineering. Research is conducted within a variety of disciplines, with strong internationally recognised research environments, e.g. materials science, information technology and disability studies.

Since gaining university status in 1975 (and before that, too), LiU has worked with innovation in education and research. For example we were first in Sweden to introduce interdisciplinary thematic research, problem-based learning (PBL), graduate schools and several innovative study programmes.

Linköping University (LiU) is a unique organization that differs from traditional academic organizations that have served as a model for most European universities. Instead of being divided into separate faculties of humanities, social sciences, philosophy etc, Linköping University encompasses four faculties:

  • Faculty of Science and Engineering / Institute of Technology
  • Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences
  • Faculty of Educational Sciences
  • Faculty of Arts & Sciences, which stretches over such diverse disciplines as social anthropology, history of literature, political science, and political economy

Linköping University carries out research and education in the areas of humanities, medicine and nursing, social and behavioural sciences, technology and natural sciences and educational sciences.  A cross-subject, interdisciplinary perspective characterises our research.
