Students’ rights and obligations
The University is a public body that is answerable to the Swedish government. As at all universities in Sweden, the study programmes we offer are subject to Swedish legislation – primarily the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. At the University of Skövde, there are also local regulations that apply to students. It is therefore important that you find out about the rules that apply to you, so that you can get the maximum benefit from the time you spend studying with us.
