The difference between a fine arts and a general degree is not entirely defined, but it can be expressed as a fine arts degree having a greater emphasis on the element of composition.
Higher education institutions (HEIs) that wish to award fine arts degrees at the third-cycle must apply for degree-awarding powers. So far, three HEIs have received these degree-awarding powers:
- The University of Gothenburg
- Lund University
- The University of Borås, in the field of textiles and fashion
In 2014, these HEIs had a total of 57 doctoral students specialising in fine arts degrees.
