    PART I: GENERAL INFORMATION

; DESCRIPTION OF TOWN

- SHORT HISTORY AND LOCATION

    Written reference to Linköping was made as early as 1120 A.C. when the city was an Episcopal see. The building of a cathedral

    began in 1230. Four centuries later, one of Sweden’s first pre-university schools was founded. Contemporary Linköping continues its tradition as a set of learning through a modern university founded in the sixties. Linköping is the 5th largest city in Sweden with approximately 136.000 inhabitants. Linköping is situated in southern Sweden, 200 kilometres south of Stockholm. Despite its growth, Linköping has retained a small-town charm. An excellent network of bicycle paths makes it easy to get around, which is a

    great advantage for the students (only 15 minutes by bike from the main campus to the city centre).

- MAIN LOCAL/CULTURAL EVENTS

    The City of Linköping offers visitors and inhabitants beauty, excitement and other great experiences. We have a living, well-

    preserved city centre with many shops, cafés, restaurants and dance halls. Film, theatre, music and exhibitions can be enjoyed all round the year. Not forgetting the student orchestra festival! the world famous Old Linköping with Valla Recreation Area, the Air

    Force Museum, the County Museum, Cloetta Center, Cathedral, sports grounds. Several old castles round the city are well-known sights for excursions with activities. The Göta Canal, which runs into Lake Roxen, and the Kinda Canal down by the Kinda lakes are an experience, with many old locks and fine surroundings - for tourists on land as well. On the outskirts there are hypermarkets that are visited from far and near - IKEA, among others.

- HOW TO REACH TOWN (LINKS FROM THE NEAREST AIRPORT, TRAIN OR COACH STATIONS)

There are many ways to reach Linköping. The city can be reached by train, flight, bus as well as by car. Flying to Stockholm or

    Copenhagen and taking to train/bus to Linköping is one of the options. The local airports in Linköping and in Norrköping have

    regular flight connections to domestic and international destinations. A low fair airline operating in Nyköping/Skavsta airport flies

    regularly to many European cities. The Nyköping/Skavsta airport is approximately situated 100 km north from Linköping and a

    regular bus service connects Linköping and the airport. Long distance busses from all over Europe arrive at Linköping Central

    Station.

    become internationally renowned for its innovative education spirit and for its stated ambition to foster cross-disciplinary

    cooperation. From the start, the university was organised along multidisciplinary lines. A thematic approach to arts and science research has given rise to many interdisciplinary study programmes, which were later taken up by other universities. Students come

    from all over the world to study the programmes taught in Swedish and in English. Approximately 1500 international students attend

    Linköping

    University each year among which approximately 800 are exchange students.

In Linköping, most students live in student housing areas situated within cycling distance of the campus.
