University West was founded in 1990. Originally spread out across three campuses, its new location in Trollhättan was built in 2008 and designed specifically to meet the needs of modern students. The university’s programs cooperate and collaborate closely with regional businesses and society. This year, the university hosted more than 200 international students.
