The University of Skövde, founded in 1977, is located in the center of the city of Skövde and is one of the newest universities in Sweden with an enrollment of about 2,600 students.

Similar to UW-Stout, Skövde has a mission of educating students for careers in business and industry with several cross-disciplinary programs. Many of its courses use case studies to link learning to the practical needs of industry and society. The campus area has kept its old time charm with modern architecture. Both students and instructors in Sweden are generally fluent in English.  

Location: Skövde, Sweden

Skövde is situated in between Sweden's two biggest lakes, Vänern and Vättern. The town has about 50,000 residents and more than one fifth of the population are students. From Skövde you have easy access to many cities in Sweden, approximately one hour to Gothenburg and two hours to Stockholm by train. The travel center called 'Resecentrum' gives access to county transit buses, the high-speed train X2000 and intercity trains. 

The city and neighboring region offer many recreational activities and sports including hiking, soccer, fishing, and skiing.
