Meet the Swedish project part­ners: Malmö Uni­ver­sitet and Malmö Stad

Malmö Universitet

Higher education institution

In total, Malmö Uni­ver­si­ty has approx­i­mate­ly 24,000 stu­dents and approx­i­mate­ly 1,900 mem­bers of staff. It was found­ed in 1998, and since the begin­ning its vision has been to con­tribute to a sus­tain­able and equal soci­ety through research-based knowl­edge, crit­i­cal reflec­tion and acces­si­bil­i­ty of edu­ca­tion and life­long learning.

The uni­ver­si­ty has been active­ly work­ing to widen par­tic­i­pa­tion in rela­tion to recruit­ing stu­dents from a non-tra­di­tion­al uni­ver­si­ty back­ground. Today, one third of the stu­dents have a non-Swedish back­ground, and two thirds are first gen­er­a­tion aca­d­e­mics. Malmö Uni­ver­si­ty has five fac­ul­ties and five research centers.

Malmö Uni­ver­si­ty is an active hub for research and edu­ca­tion in tune with the com­mu­ni­ty. The uni­ver­si­ty coop­er­ates with the social envi­ron­ment, busi­ness and pub­lic sec­tor to con­tribute towards iden­ti­fy­ing and cre­at­ing solu­tions to soci­etal challenges.

Edu­ca­tion at Malmö Uni­ver­si­ty focus­es on, among oth­er things, migra­tion, sus­tain­abil­i­ty, urban stud­ies, social work and edu­ca­tion. The edu­ca­tion­al pro­grammes encom­pass an intern­ship and project work in close col­lab­o­ra­tion with exter­nal actors. This also applies to the research, which focus­es heav­i­ly on col­lab­o­ra­tion with the sur­round­ing society.
