We are very happy to announce our 5th Linköping University Summer Academy, that will take place between 4th July and 29th July 2022.
The programme will give students an opportunity to study in Linköping, Sweden, for four weeks during the summer. They get to choose from several high-quality courses and gain cultural insights together with other students from our international partner universities all around the globe.
All courses are at bachelor's level, credit bearing (7.5 ECTS), will be taught in English and are full-time. For students from LiU’s partner universities the LiU Summer Academy is tuition free.
