The announcement has now been made from the Swedish Higher Education Authority (UKÄ) that MDH’s Midwifery degree is of a high quality and that the degree-awarding powers are thereby secured. – The Midwifery programme is important for MDH, but above all it’s important for the region and for the county councils, which means that today’s news is really very positive, says Vice-Chancellor Karin Röding.
Vinnova has carried out the first of two test pilots in which funding for universities and university colleges has been allocated according to performance and quality in their cooperation with other sectors of society. MDH was awarded top marks and 2.8 million SEK of a total of 60 million SEK distributed among 27 HEIs (higher education institutions).
Record numbers again! For the spring term, 16,280 individuals have applied for a course or programme at MDH, which is an increase from the spring 2015, when the number of applicants was 15 206. When it comes to the number of applicants for first-cycle study programmes, 9,540 have chosen MDH, which is an increase by 23 percent.
