The Student Union

The Student Union is an organisation that works closely with the University, to maintain the quality of the education and study-social environment from a student’s perspective. At MDH we are proud of our Student Union, and also of the International Committee, who make sure to take good care of all you international students.

Everyone should do what they do best and MDH is great when it comes to education. When it comes to accommodation MDH cooperate closely with the best accommodation agencies in town. You register and apply online on their website.

The majority of our programmes and courses in English are given at Campus Västerås and many of the teachers/professors/faculty members you will encounter during your studies at MDH are based there. This combined with the active international student association makes most international students choose to stay in Västerås.
