The School of Health and Welfare strives to operate in close contact with society.

For example:

  • by being flexible to market needs when planning our study programmes
  • by working with other schools and universities, companies and organizations. This has resulted in innovations and improvement being natural parts of the education.
  • Cooperating in research involving both national and international participants. This generates unique knowledge for society. Research forms a foundation for quality and development and is an important source of inspiration for the students

The School of Health and Welfare has a strong focus on international collaboration in all education and research. The international network covers all continents and consists of about sixty partner universities. The international collaboration is based on a mutual exchange of knowledge and resources and our aim is to achieve a balance in the exchange of students and teachers. The international activities include exchange of students and teachers, guest lecturers, international courses in English and research collaboration.
