University of Skövde, Sweden

International Cooperation



We are modern university with an open and welcoming approach, first-class education and internationally competitive research, a place where we strive for the greatest achievements. The University of Skövde is relatively young, but still comparable to the old prestigious universities in terms of quality. In the national quality assessments of 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 programmes are unique specialisations while others have interdisciplinary breadth. We also collaborate with the business community; recognizing their demands in order to train employable students. We are one of the most specialized universities in Sweden. Research is conducted within five areas: Informatics, System Biology, Virtual Systems, Health and Learning, and Enterprises for the future. By concentrating our efforts, we offer our partners in the business community, academia and society as a whole specialized, competitive research and highly skilled researchers.


The spring application deadline is October 15, or the next autumn semester the deadline is April 15.  We are looking forward to welcoming the first USTB-students to Skövde!
