Geographically, Mid Sweden University is located in the middle of Sweden, right at the heart of Northern Europe. It is a young university, but its roots go back more than 150 years. In 1842, the same year as the elementary school was established in Sweden, the decision was made to place a teachers’ education college in Härnösand, a former campus of Mid Sweden University.
Today, Mid Sweden University has two campuses, in Sundsvall and Östersund, and approximately 24000 students. Around 6000 students are campus students, evenly divided between the two campus cities, and the rest study via distance programmes.
