About the University of Borås

The vision of the University of Borås is to achieve full university status and become the third university with full academic rights in West Sweden. As a step towards realising this vision, the university focuses on the learning of students, increasing the proportion of research, and continuing to build complete academic environments.

In collaboration with the public and private sectors, we conduct education and research of high international quality with great societal relevance. We are a modern university with a central campus in the centre of the city.

The national and internationally known Swedish School of Textiles and Swedish School of Library and Information Science are a part of the University of Borås, both of which have educational programmes and research.
