Great student life
Västerås has all the prerequisites for a great student life.  Anyone coming here to study from a different town is guaranteed accommodation and if you live in students’ accommodation you only have to pay rent ten months per year as the summer months are free. As a student at MDH you will also be given the opportunity to carry out part of your studies overseas. This offers a fantastic opportunity to widen your experience and improve your language skills before you start working.

The Västerås campus is just a 15-minute walk from the central station and close to the city centre and recreational activities. With so many different students associations and an active students’ union, your time here is guaranteed to be both educational and fun.

There is a wide variety of different clubs and associations, great beaches, wonderful recreational areas, gyms, cycle paths and exercise tracks right on the doorstep and a vibrant nightlife just a short walk away. In Västerås you are never far from anything!

Education that leads to employment
MDH is one of the best institutes of higher education in Sweden and provides education that leads to employment. In fact, 79 per cent of the students find a job within their area of expertise within one year of graduating. Thanks to the university’s close collaboration with trade and industry and other employers, students gain access to a large number of important networks and contacts during their time at MDH.
