Malmö University has a modern approach to teaching, where a student-centred learning approach plays an important part. We aim to create a multi-disciplinary learning environment, which means students will often study across more than one faculty. Programmes often include internship elements and project work in close cooperation with regional authorities, local initiatives and international companies.

Malmö University (Swedish: Malmö universitet) is a Swedish university located in Malmö, Sweden.With more than 24,000 students and about 1,600 employees (academic and administrative), Malmö University is the ninth largest institute of learning in Sweden. It has exchange agreements with more than 240 partner universities around the world and roughly a third of the students have an international background. Education at Malmö University focuses on, among other things, migration, international relations, political science, sustainability, urban studies, and new media and technology. It often includes elements of internship and project work in close cooperation with external partners.

Located at Universitetsholmen in the centre of the city, the university has played an important role in the transformation of Malmö from an industrial town to a centre of learning. A large part of the campus was constructed on grounds which, up to the mid-1980s, belonged to the Kockums shipyard, which had been a key element of naval-industrial Malmö.

While this institution was founded as a university college ("högskola") in 1998, the Swedish minister for higher education and research conferred full university status on January 1, 2018
