Higher education in Sweden – 2014 status report

Higher education in Sweden – 2014 status report is a short English version of the annual statistical report on Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Sweden published by UKÄ (Swedish Higher Education Authority).

Sweden’s largest public-sector

The ambition is to provide reliable information about the status of Sweden’s largest public-sector commitment – higher education. This report is based on the statistical data continually reported by the HEIs to Statistics Sweden and the data reported directly to the Swedish Higher Education Authority in connection with the submission of their annual reports to the Government.

International perspective

Initially, the report summarises some indicators for Swedish higher education in an international perspective and, under the heading Facts about higher education in Sweden, provides a basic description of the structure of Swedish higher education and the regulatory framework. The report then outlines developments prior to and including the fiscal year of 2013 for public-sector and independent HEIs.

The last section presents key data about students, staff and finance for each HEI.
