Since being established in 1977, Dalarna University has experienced rapid growth and today is the place of study for about 16 000 students and has close to 800 employees. Our two campuses - one based in Falun, one in Borlänge - offer a wide range of educational opportunities.
Many courses and programmes are developed in close collaboration with regional business and industry, as well as other social sectors.
Our fields of research involve researchers from many different disciplines at the University as well as researchers from other institutes of higher education at both the national and international levels. We also maintain a high level of collaboration with private business and industry as well as public institutions.
Study advisors can help you find out more about courses, programmes, and careers and provide you with information about qualifications and marketing your university degree. They provide advice to both current students and individuals who are planning to begin their studies and can help you make a career choice that is right for you.
