Karlstad University is a vibrant education and multidisciplinary research community of about 10,000 students and 260 doctoral students. The University employs a little over 1,000 staff, 70 percent of whom are highly qualified lecturers and researchers. A friendly and open atmosphere is fostered among students, staff, and local and international partners. The main aim of Karlstad University is to provide broad-based, multidisciplinary programmes for students in Sweden and visiting students from abroad, while developing strong areas of research.
Research has grown rapidly in recent years. To meet future demands for sustainable development, much research at the university is multidisciplinary, and the ambition is to further develop its leading research fields, notably communication and services, pulp, paper and surface treatment, printing technology, packaging, the environment, tool materials, education, working life science, tourism and leisure, and gender relations.
Karlstad University enjoys strong local and regional support, not least from the municipality of Karlstad. The university is central to regional development, and contributes nationally and internationally to the generation of knowledge. Close contact is also maintained with many universities and research institutes through a wide range of national and international projects and activities. Our ambition is to become one of the top universities in Europe in terms of cooperation with external partners, actors, and institutions.
