About Karlstad

Welcome to Karlstad

Karlstad is the heart and soul of Värmland. This is where you study UX, project management, and game development close to creative industries and exciting innovation clusters. Karlstad has an active student life and many companies who participate in your education and take you in during your LIA.

Karlstad Innovation Park

Our educations are conducted at Karlstad Innovation Park, close to Karlstad University. You’ll hang out and study in a dynamic, creative environment where you’re close to everything: restaurants, cafés, gyms, and innovative companies and people.


The Great Journey

We work closely with “The Great Journey”, an active community by and for game developers. TGJ is a “hotspot” for game devs which arranges collabs, jams, game projects and much more.
