What is Yrkeshögskolan – Higher Vocational Educations
Higher Vocational Education programs have come about as a response to a real labor market need and their operations are in concert with employers and the industry. Students will be prepared for a direct entry into the employment market.
The Swedish National Agency for Higher Vocational Education decide which programs are to be provided and allocated public funding to. YH also carries out follow-ups, evaluations and inspections. Completion of a minimum two-year program at Futuregames will results in an YH Advanced Diploma in Higher Vocational Education.
A key part of the YH system is that it requires more than 80% of the graduated students to find a job within the industry within six months of completing the education. This rigid requirement acts as guarantee that we are completely focused on getting our students into the industry.
