The year 2000 did not only mark the start of a new millennium. It was also when Lund University established a campus in Sweden’s eighth largest city, Helsingborg. Over the years, what began as a regional campus has grown into an international campus where over 4 200 students and more than 200 employees from all over the world meet under the same roof.
Education and research are carried out in cooperation with other parts of Lund University. Campus Helsingborg is a part of Lund University and carries with it, the same excellence and commitment to education and research.
Campus Helsingborg offers both study programmes and free-standing courses, which in a number of cases are unique not only in Sweden, but in the whole of Europe. A direct link to the business sector and community is never far away. We maintain continual dialogue with the business sector on the education we offer, in order to keep our programmes and courses at the cutting edge.
Campus Helsingborg’s profile is at once broad and specialised. On the one hand, it is home to education and research in traditional and vast subject areas – such as social work and engineering. On the other hand, research in new, emerging academic fields thrives here – such as service management, fashion studies and strategic communication. With these encounters in mind, Campus Helsingborg’s interdisciplinary and innovative profile does not come as a surprise.
Lund University in Helsingborg also distinguishes itself by being the first university in Sweden to offer a teacher training programme together with another higher education institution, Kristianstad University.
It is not only Campus Helsingborg's activities that are constantly developing and expanding. Today extensive expansion is underway in the region, which has a flourishing business sector with a large need for well-educated employees.
Helsingborg, together with Malmö, Lund and Copenhagen, is also a cornerstone of the strong and dynamic Copenhagen Malmö Region.
