Malmo University
Malmo, Sweden


University description (as per official university website)

Malmö University was founded in 1998 and is today Sweden’s ninth largest university of undergraduate studies. 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 jobs market through a multi-disciplinary approach that 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.

Malmö University has five 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 our courses and programs give graduates a wider outlook as they prepare for their imminent professional working careers.

How Malmö University is run

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.
