The Swedish Higher Education Authority - Universitetskanslersämbetet (UKÄ) - evaluates higher education programmes to ensure that your chosen programme is of high quality.

The objectives of UKÄ’s reviews are to assess the performance of the study programmes and contribute to the university’s work with quality improvements in higher education and research.

New system for evaluating higher education

In 2017, a new quality assurance model was developed by the Swedish Higher Education Authority (UKÄ) in close dialogue with universities and university colleges. The new model will be used from 2017-2022.

Programme evaluations

Using the new model for quality assurance put in place in 2017, a selection of programmes from throughout Sweden will be reviewed. UKÄ will focus on how a programme ensures that students are provided with the necessary conditions to reach their degree goals. The reviews will also contribute to university's and university colleges' own development of programme quality. 

Results of programme evaluations

UKÄ has provided the results of their evaluations in a service called "Högskolekollen". Available in Swedish, you can check the results of regularly completed evaluations.
