International student recruitment

The international student recruitment focuses on marketing and programme information aimed at freemover students, in particular fee-paying students. The Section for Student Recruitment and Student communication has responsibility for the overall wok with international student recruitment.

The Section for Student Recruitment and Student Communication is responsible for the international recruitment work that strengthens Linnaeus University as a whole, and its trademark. The work comprises all courses and programmes and is carried out at an overall level.

Even though the main focus is on overall measures, we also work with supplementary activities for the programmes/disciplinary domains that have been prioritised by the Council for Education and Learning for each respective admission round. We also carry out certain activities at programme level for non-prioritised programmes.

We adapt our choice of channel and content based on the target group. Activities are also carried out in relation to a prospective student’s journey from creating awareness to getting him/her to apply.

To initiate and coordinate activities within international student recruitment, a reference group with representation both from the University Administration and each faculty meets 3–4 times per semester.
