History, Affiliations and Rankings

Linköping became Sweden's sixth university in 1975. Linköping University (LiU) has grown significantly since then, with campuses in Norrköping and Stockholm.

The Cathedral School opened in 1627 as Sweden's third upper secondary school, and a college for primary school teachers opened in 1843. The Fröbel Institute, Sweden's first college for training preschool teachers, was established in Norrköping in 1902. The university is affiliated with European University Association (EUA) and European Consortium of Innovative Universities (ECIU). It is accredited by the Swedish Higher Education Authority (UKÄ).
