Malmö University

Introduction

Malmö University was founded in 1998. Located in the centre of Malmö, the university has played a central role in the transformation of Malmö from an industrial town to a centre of learning.

Malmö is located in southern Sweden, close to Copenhagen, Denmark and with easy access to mainland Europe.

Malmö University strives to be a university open to all; a university that is structured to cope with the ever-changing job market through a multi-disciplinary approach which crosses traditional school and faculty boundaries. This is also one of the reasons we make an effort to attract students that come from a background where university education has not necessarily been part of their tradition. At present, almost 1,800 international students are enroled at the university. In total we have 25,000 full or part-time students.

In total, Malmö University has more than 90 separate education programmes and 500 courses. We teach 18 degree programmes and 90 courses in English.

European citizens can make a late application to some of our bachelor's degrees. Although the official application period for master's degrees has also closed, it is still possible for international students to make a late application.

In Sweden, the state is responsible for the running of the national colleges and universities. The Swedish government determines the rules and laws relating to higher education in Sweden and The National Agency for Higher Education oversees the government’s decisions.

As public authorities, universities must therefore comply with the principle of free access to public records. The rules for the operation of the universities are regulated by the university’s higher education ordinance.

Malmö University’s highest decision-making body is the board. The university’s managing director and highest authority is the Vice-Chancellor. The university’s management team includes among others the Pro Vice-Chancellor, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, the Faculty Deans, the Head of Administration and the Head of Information.

The common administration unit has an overall responsibility for the University and its administrative functions.
