About the University

Örebro University (SwedishÖrebro universitet) is a state university in ÖrebroSweden.

University-level education in Örebro started in the 1960s, when Uppsala University started to offer some courses in Örebro. On the basis of these activities, an independent högskola (university college) was created in 1977 under the name Högskolan i Örebro (Örebro University College). This university college also incorporated three other existing educational institutions in Örebro: the teaching seminar, the sports college (founded in 1966) and the social work college (founded 1967). Örebro University College was granted the privileges of a university by the Government of Sweden in 1999, becoming the 12th university in Sweden.

On 30 March 2010 the university was granted the right to award medical degrees in collaboration with Örebro University Hospital, making it the 7th medical school in Sweden. Örebro University co-hosts the Centre of Gender Excellence established by the Swedish Research Council.

The law programme at Örebro University is one of Sweden's most popular programmes (number 10 in 2018, with more than 4,800 applicants)

Our vision is to be a university that leads towards a knowledge-driven society.

Close ties between teaching and learning, research and collaboration, are the mutual starting points for all activities. We offer many attractive professional degree programmes in, among others, medicine, psychology, law and engineering. The university has strong research within medicine, psychology, environmental science and computer science.
