Linkoping University
Innovators
 
Innovative, high-ranking Linköping University in southeastern Sweden offers a wide range of English-taught master's programmes. Linköping University graduates are particularly popular with employers, with an independent study showing that they are amongst the first in the country to gain employment. Linköping University, with over 28,000 students at bachelor's, master's and doctoral levels, is the quiet performer from the Swedish heartlands.

High-ranking young uni

Linköping University – or LiU, as it's often called – ranked 26th in the 2014 QS ranking of the world's best universities less than 50 years old and now ranks among the 300 best universities in the world. As a relatively young university, it's free of the traditions that obstruct innovation and creativity. For instance LiU was the first Swedish university to embrace interdisciplinary teaching and research – blending technology, sciences and the humanities. LiU encourages a collaborative approach to studies and work.

Students from overseas appreciate Linköping University's flat hierarchies and hands-on approach. You address your lecturers and professors by their first name. Labs at LiU have enough capacity that you can often do some actual lab work yourself.

Business successes

Sweden's population is just less than ten million – not much by world standards. But the country certainly punches above its weight in the business sector. Successful businesses born in Sweden include IKEA, H&M, Volvo, Scania, SAAB, Ericsson, TetraPak, AtlasCopco, Skype, Spotify and Mojang – the developers of Minecraft.

Life in Sweden

So how is life in Sweden? Well the winters are actually a delight – provided you rug up properly. Accommodation is comfortable; with central heating and industrial-strength insulation you'll stay warm while it's snowy outside. Prices are much on a par with the UK and rents are reasonable. People can be a little reserved, but are helpful and friendly once you get them talking.

Bikes and hikes

International master's students at Linköping University love the easy lifestyle on offer in the twin towns of Linköping and Norrköping. A bicycle is the best way to get around, usually on separate bike lanes – that are even ploughed in winter. The surrounding region is beautiful, with easy access to lakes, hiking areas and wilderness, and the national capital of Stockholm is only about 90 minutes away by train. Because most Swedish master's programmes at LiU are two-years long, you have plenty of time for a life outside your studies. So you don't just leave with a degree. You learn, but you also live.
