Festive annual ceremony for students graduating from international master's programmes
Today is the launch of LiU’s new logo and graphic identity. The abbreviation LiU will feature more prominently, and the Swedish name for the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, ”Hälsouniversitetet”, will now make way for ”Medicinska fakulteten”.
The reactions to LiU’s new logo has led to numerous negative comments on social media, especially from students.

As a student at LiU you are eligible to attend LiU’s anniversary concert on Sunday 24 May. It will include the world premiere of music written by Sweden’s most acclaimed young composer, Andrea Tarrodi.
