More about the projects!

Mid Sweden University is organising the international summer university in collaboration with partner universities.  Participants work in small teams where all members combine their knowledge and experience to find exciting solutions to the challenges posed by the project in your area of expertise.

This is also a unique possibility to study and explore nature next door, experience another culture together with students from various countries. You will experience inspiring lectures around the theme of Sustainable Futures, where qualified lecturers from Mid Sweden University  and our other partner universities will share their knowledge.  Together with the other students, you will also have the opportunity to see the surrounding area, go for day trips and participate in other social activities.


The summer university gives you the opportunity to:

  • Develop your creative thinking

  • Be a specialist in your field of study

  • Perform under real-life working conditions. 

  • Meet students from all over the world and work interdisciplinarily

  • Useful experience in preparation for the future

Would you participate again if you had the opportunity? Yes. I will probably have graduated by next Summer University so I can’t join again, but I have already texted my friends who will still be studying and recommended it to them.

Would you participate again if you had the opportunity? Yes. Then I would probably work on a more technical project, but this was also a terrific learning experience and I am happy that I participated.

What did you like the best about the summer university? During the first week, all the students cooked together. This was a great way to get to know each other, have fun, and work together in a relaxed environment. It gave us a good starting point for working together on our projects. Also, the lectures we had during lunch during the first week were really good.
