Startpage for Swedish National Agency for Higher Education

Please note! The Swedish National Agency for Higher Education was closed down on 31 December 2012. Instead two new agencies have been established: the Swedish Council for Higher Education and the Swedish Higher Education Authority. This website will continue to operate as the new agencies will have links to information it contains.  


Högskoleverket (Swedish National Agency for Higher Education) has a responsibility to provide information to the Government, higher education institutions and other interested parties about the higher education sector. The Swedish National Agency for Higher Education's publications are a result of the evaluations, audits, supervisory visits, thematic studies and surveys conducted on a regular basis.

The Agency is also responsible for developing and maintaining a Swedish-English word list on behalf of the Ministry of Education.
