Renewed and specialised educational offering

2022-06-15 

University of Gävle renews and develops its educational offering as of the academic year 2023/2024. “We are strengthening the University’s competitiveness and we will be better equipped to meet student demand and the needs of the labour market,” says Ylva Fältholm, Vice-Chancellor of University of Gävle.

The University will have a renewed range of study programmes and courses as of the academic year 2023/2024.

The renewal is in line with the University’s education and research strategy for 2021–2030. Therefore, the range of study programmes and courses offered will be based on student demand, clearly connected to the needs of the labour market and the research at the University. The process of renewing the range of study programmes and courses offered has been ongoing since March 2020. The aim is to create greater societal benefit and to contribute to a knowledge boost in the region.

Development and discontinuation

The formal decision on a renewed educational offering was taken on 14 June: six study programmes will be revised or developed, and three study programmes will be discontinued. In addition, all study programmes in engineering will be reviewed in a consolidation process, which means that they will be merged. If you are admitted to a study programme that will be discontinued, you will still be able to continue with your studies and complete the programme. If you are studying in one of the engineering programmes that will be revised, you can continue with your studies as before. You will be informed if there are any updates that will affect you.
