Urban and rural

Our eight campuses have great diversity, from city centers to more rural areas. The campuses brings you closer to other students and your lecturers. In addition, student accommodation is usually more reasonable in these areas.

The campuses are strategically located near businesses, industry, hospitals, schools and kindergartens. A close collaboration with the business world ensures that many of our students can get a foothold in working life during their studies.
