Internationalisation at University of Gävle

Courses taught in English

International educational exchanges and academic collaboration across national boundaries have long been a tradition at the University of Gävle. A number of courses taught in English opens opportunities for foreign students to study here. The major part of this international collaboration takes place at the undergraduate and master degree levels. International mobility for Gävle students has mainly occurred within EU countries.

However, the University of Gävle has academic contacts in countries such as Canada, China and South Korea as well, contacts that add to our global network of educational exchange.

Moreover, the on-going international exchange of Gävle faculty members and administrators creates a stable foundation for our international network of educational programmes and research projects.
