About Vocational Higher Education

How Our Vocational Higher Education Programs Work

We offer programs that are directly tailored to the needs of the job market. Our programs are designed to provide you as a student with practical knowledge that can be directly applied in the workplace.

The Role of MYH in the Education System

The Swedish National Agency for Higher Vocational Education (MYH) plays a central role in overseeing and ensuring the quality of vocational higher education programs in Sweden. MYH is responsible for accrediting new education programs and ensuring they meet all regulations and standards for high quality and relevance. Through regular audits and feedback from MYH, we can guarantee that our programs consistently meet the highest possible standards and are appropriately aligned with the needs of both students and the job market.

The Role of Management Teams

Each vocational program at our school has an associated management team that plays a central role in designing and updating course content to ensure it is current and relevant. These teams consist of industry experts and business representatives who work together to ensure our courses both follow and lead industry developments. The work of the management teams ensures that each program adapts to new technological advancements and the changing demands of the job market.

Work-Based Learning (LIA)

A crucial part of our programs is Work-Based Learning (LIA), which constitutes a significant portion of the study period. During LIA, you as a student have the opportunity to intern at a company and apply your knowledge in practice, gaining valuable experience and improving your chances in the job market. This internship is not only an opportunity to learn the job on-site but also a chance to make connections and build a professional network.

Graduation and Vocational Higher Education Credits

Upon completion of the program, you will receive a vocational higher education diploma. Vocational higher education programs use a credit system where each full-time study week corresponds to 5 vocational higher education credits. Depending on the length and intensity of the program, the total number of credits can vary, with a complete program often ranging from one to three years. The diploma is awarded when you have achieved the total number of credits required for your specific program, ensuring that you have the knowledge and skills necessary to enter the workforce directly.

Education Quality

For us, it is essential to actively work on continuously improving the quality of our education. As part of our quality assurance efforts, we regularly evaluate how our students experience their time with us. This provides us with valuable insights into what we are doing well and what we need to improve internally. Additionally, there are several external factors that impact us, such as:

-Economic conditions, including unemployment levels and economic growth.
-Political stability on both national and international levels.
-Changes in industry dynamics, such as rapid technological advancements and employers’ recruitment strategies.
-Geographic mobility (willingness to relocate) and the local job market.

-Graduation rate: 74.4% (National average: 67%)
