Mid Sweden University is Declared the Summer University of the Year | 2014 |

“Mid Sweden University admits more summer students than any other Swedish university and provides a good and serious range of courses.” In 2014, Mid Sweden University received the award “Summer University of the Year”.


The award “Summer University of the Year” is presented by the Saco Student Council and is given to the university that, in the best manner, offers students the opportunity of a meaningful occupation all the year round.

Mid Sweden University received the award for being one of few universities to resist the trend to cut the number of student places in the summer. In 2014, 7,175 summer students were admitted, which was 45 per cent more than the year before.

– Many of the courses are distance courses, which means that students from all over the country can apply. That is why the award for “Summer University of the Year” is well-deserved, said Johannes Danielsson, President of the Saco Student Council.
