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.  

Graduate schools

Setting up graduate schools is a way of creating a stimulating environment for research at higher education institutions.

Graduate schools may be organized in a great variety of ways. The most important components in graduate schools in Sweden involve improved supervision for doctoral students, cooperation between different subjects and institutions in providing courses and seminars, interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary projects and national and international networks.
