The University offers a wide range of academic programmes and courses. Some of these are unique to the University of Borås and thus attracts students from all parts of Sweden and the world.
The number of international students has been high during the last decade which has contributed to making the University of Borås a dynamic and multicultural place of learning.
The campus is located in modern, purpose built buildings in the city centre within walking distance of local amenities such as shops, restaurants, banks, supermarkets and the main bus and train stations. Public transportation in Borås is both safe and reliable and as a result many of our students choose to live in the surrounding region and commute to the university.
The University of Borås was founded in 1977. We strongly believe in giving our students knowledge and skills which they will be able to use in their working life. Our goal is to provide our students with a high quality education and the skills necessary for pursuing the career of their dreams. To make sure that our students get the best possible education, several of our lecturers have a background in industry. We also work closely with external partners in both the private and public sector and encourage our students to do work placements while studying at the University of Borås. Our approach to teaching and learning is not only highly appreciated by our students, but actually makes them more attractive on the job market and increases employability.
