Mid Sweden University

Introduction

Mid Sweden University

Geographically, Mid Sweden University is located in the middle of Sweden, right at the heart of Northern Europe. It is a young university, but its roots go back more than 150 years.

As early as in 1842, in the same year as the elementary school was established in Sweden, the decision was taken to place a teachers’ education college in Härnösand. Teacher’s education is still highly values at Mid Sweden University and today, Mid Sweden University has two campuses, Sundsvall and Östersund, with approximately 15 000 students. Around 50 percent are campus students, while the rest engage in distance studies via net based courses and programmes.

Every year students from all over the world come to study at Mid Sweden University, and we firmly believe that the international element of any education is a measurement of quality. We have partnerships with a number of universities around the world for the exchange of students and staff. We offer courses for international students at all two campuses.

As a university, we provide higher education of a high standard on undergraduate, post-graduate, and research study levels. We offer a wide range of course programmes within the social sciences, behavioural sciences, media, nursing, teachers’ education, information technology, natural sciences, technology, and languages as well as other subjects within the humanities.

At Mid Sweden University, we integrate our research with the study programmes in a natural and intriguing way. In some subjects students may go on to the research programme, after having completed courses on the basic and advanced levels.

One of the main characteristics of Mid Sweden University is a combination of the intimacy of a small college, enabling close contact between students and teachers, with the educational variety and resources offered by a large university. At Mid Sweden University, no one runs the risk of getting lost in the crowd. All students have the opportunity to get to know each other. It is precisely the intimacy and sense of togetherness that students forward as one of the most prominent advantages of Mid Sweden University.

Mid Sweden University is the leading educational institution in the field of net based learning in Sweden. Approximately 50 percent of the students at Mid Sweden University study net based courses or programmes. The concept of flexible learning describes our approach to teaching and learning.

Emotion Psychology is an internet-based programme that has one to two mandatory meetings in Östersund, Sweden, every semester. What is the duration? The duration of each programme differs. As 60 credits are a full-time study load for one year, most of our programmes at Mid Sweden University are either one or two years long. Because Emotion Psychology can be studied at a part-time study pace (15 credits per semester and 30 credits per year), the duration of 2 years at a full-time load becomes 4 years at a part-time study load.
