Örebro University has its roots in the higher education which was established in Örebro during the 1960s. In 1977, Örebro University College was established through a merger of the Uppsala University branch in Örebro, the Preschool Teaching Seminary, the College of Physical Education and Sport Science, and the College of Social Sciences. Örebro University was founded in 1999.
We offer some 80 degree programmes at the undergraduate and Master’s levels as well as some 600 separate courses.
We work to ensure society benefits from the knowledge and opportunities we create. It is important too, that we reflect the needs and interests of society through our work and development.
One of the ways we do this is through our partnerships across the business, public and voluntary sectors. They are partnerships powering interesting, exciting and creative possibilities. Possibilities for us. Possibilities for you.
