Higher education in Sweden – 2013 status report

Higher education in Sweden – 2013 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).

The Swedish Higher Education Authority is continuing the tradition previously observed by the National Agency for Higher Education (Högskoleverket) and is now publishing the first short version in English of its annual statistical report on higher education institutions in Sweden.

The report gives a description of the current situation in Sweden’s largest public sector area – the higher education sector.

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 2012 for public-sector and independent universities and university colleges.

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

Analyses in the statistical report are mainly based on information supplied by Statistics Sweden and the Swedish Higher Education Authority.
