About Linkoping University:

Linköping University was established in 1975 and since then has gone on to become one of the larger universities in Sweden. Originally the government established a branch of the University of Stockholm in the town of Linköping to provide education in the fields of technology and medicine. As other schools and faculties were added over the years Linköping University was born. Linköping University now consists of four campuses spread over three cities. It has an innovative structure consisting of four very broad faculties: Medicine and Health Sciences, Arts and Sciences, Educational Sciences and the Institute of Technology. There are also 14 departments, each combining skills and knowledge from different faculties to facilitate interdisciplinary research and academic work. There are also several cutting edge research institutes at Linköping which receive government funding and specialise in such fields as organic bioelectronics, hearing and deafness, gender excellence and disaster medicine. The university prides itself on its work in the areas of medicine, teacher training, business and economics and offers international students a great opportunity to study in a stimulating interdisciplinary environment.
