The Swedish Higher Education Agency (Universitetskanslersämbetet, UKÄ) considers MDH’s specialist nursing programmes for anaesthetic care, intensive care and district nurses to be of ‘high quality’. – Our specialist nursing programmes are important for both the University and the region, so it is with great pleasure that we receive UKÄ’s announcement, says Paul Pettersson, acting vice-chancellor.
The application numbers have come in for the country’s university programmes and courses offered in the autumn, and more than 27,000 individuals have chosen an MDH programme. The healthcare programmes are in the lead with regard to first-choice applicants, and the new political science programme is very popular among prospective students, too.
MDH has been granted close on SEK 60 million by the European Commission to lead a research project that will develop future solutions for how industrial processes and power stations are to be optimised. The results can increase industrial production at the same time as less energy is used.
