There wasn’t always a university in Karlstad. Fact is, we became a university in 1999. But there is a long tradition of higher education in Karlstad. There’s been teacher education here since 1843, and it goes on to this day. Here are some milestones from our university’s rich history.
One of the most inspirational campus environments in the country, with modern and architecturally unique facitilies. We were proud to receive the StudyPortals Award for Outstanding International Student Satisfaction in 2014, ranking as #1 in Sweden. The award is based on thousands of reviews and opinions from international students in Europe. We offer several master’s programmes in English in subjects ranging from business and humanities to engineering and science.
