Seven reasons to choose Halmstad University

An innovative and forward-thinking university

Halmstad University is a young and creative university. We work across subject boundaries to generate knowledge and solve challenging problems. Our distinguished researchers also give you, as a student, a push forward – you can be absolutely sure that you will take the latest knowledge within your subject with you.

Good connections with employers

Our educations are among the best in the country when it comes to collaborating with employers. Year after year, we continue to be at the top in Confederation of Swedish Enterprise’s benchmarking. Your studies will have a close connection to the reality you will later be working in.

Unique educations

Unique educations are one of the main reasons why our students have chosen Halmstad University. We combine subject fields in new and exciting ways in order to meet a changing world and new competence requirements.

The size

As a student studying at a smaller university, you will be seen more. The classes are often smaller and the contact between students, teachers and researchers is closer. It gives you a greater ability to contribute and impact your education, more hands-on learning, and better access to state-of-the-art facilities and opportunities while also being more affordable.

It also results in short distances on campus – you will never have to go far regardless if you’re studying, want a coffee break, or need to borrow books.

Easy to find accommodation

Students unable to find accommodation is a well-known problem in many university cities. In Halmstad, the situation is better. If you start looking in good time, we can almost promise you that it will work out.


We are located in one of Sweden’s greenest, most liveable and most innovative small cities. Located a short drive from Gothenburg in one direction, and the Malmö-Copenhagen metro area in the other, Halmstad itself is an oasis of calm offering a peaceful study environment and riverside setting. It's located by the ocean, with a quaint city centre and cycling distance to all of it. We also have Sweden’s most famous beach!

Student life

Halmstad often gets top grade as a student city and has a reputation of offering Sweden’s best Fresher’s Week. You’ll find student organisations for many different interests and a rich culture and entertainment life on campus as well as in the city centre.
