Malmo University

Location

Malmo, Sweden

Location Description

Malmö is the commercial center of southern Sweden and an international city. This is expressed by the fact that Malmö has 270,000 residents who speak some 100 languages and belong to 164 different nationalities. Malmö is also undergoing a transition from being an industrial city to a city of knowledge. Older industries have been replaced by investments in new technology and training programmes of high caliber. Cooperation between colleges, science parks, and companies provides a sound basis for entrepreneurs and creative development in Malmö.

An exceptionally well developed infrastructure makes Malmö very easy to reach, whatever means of transport you use to get there: boat, plane, train or car. Malmö has an international harbor and the airports Kastrup and Sturup are only half an hour's journey from the center of Malmö. The motorway reaches right into the city center and Malmö has excellent rail connections with the rest of Sweden and Europe.

University Profile

Malmö University was founded in 1998 and is today Sweden’s eighth largest university of undergraduate studies, with over 21,000 students. Located in the centre of Malmö at Universitetsholmen, the university has played a central role in the transformation of Malmö from industrial town to centre of learning.

Malmö University strives to be a university open to all; a university that is structured to cope with our ever-changing job market through a multi-disciplinary approach that crosses traditional school and faculty boundaries. Malmö University has six school and faculty areas, all of which are multi-disciplinary. This means that several sciences meet under one roof, each one enriching the other.  It also means that courses and programs give graduates a wider outlook as they prepare for their imminent professional working careers.
