First-class education and internationally competitive research

We are a modern and welcoming university, with first-class education and internationally competitive research, a place where we strive for the greatest accomplishments.

Quality assesment

The University of Skövde is relatively young, but still comparable to the old prestigious universities in terms of quality. In the national quality assessments for 2011 to 2014 we came in seventh place. This can be attributed to methodical and persistent work to offer high quality courses, facilitating both knowledge and employability. Some of our programs are unique specializations while others have interdisciplinary breadth. We also collaborate with the industry; following their demands in order to create employable students.

Specialized research

We are one of the most specialized universities in Sweden. Research is conducted within five areas: Informatics, System Biology, Virtual Engineering, Health and Learning, and Entreprises for the future. By concentrating our efforts, we can provide competitive research and highly skilled researchers to our partners within academia, the industry and society in general.
