Tourist destinations across the world face major challenges. With fewer visitors, their economies will be threatened; with more visitors, their social, cultural and ecological sustainability will be threatened.

Education is our principal task, and our students are our inspiration. Our employees are dedicated to educating our students to equip them as well as possible to meet some of society’s biggest challenges in transitioning to sustainability. They are striving to optimise teaching so that knowledge is imparted and developed.

The study environment at Campus Gotland is small in scale, which promotes excellent contacts between students and lecturers. Every student is seen and acknowledged, and supporting students’ individual learning processes is something we have long experience in doing. There is a high proportion of teacher-directed learning time.

The study programmes involve a significant component of collaboration with society at large, in particular with the local community. This gives you valuable experience and contacts for your working life. 

Campus Gotland is Uppsala University’s most international environment, and many of its study programmes attract a high proportion of international students. Roughly one fifth of all students come from other countries. Whether you are studying an international programme or not, you will meet students from all over the world.

Lecture halls, the library, the students’ union, student services, cafés and sandy beaches are all within easy walking distance. As a result, there is no shortage of opportunities to meet students from other programmes who will expand your horizons and enrich your time as a student.
