Our vision is to be a university that leads towards a knowledge-driven society.
Örebro University currently ranks among the top 500 universities in the world according to Times Higher Education 2022. For a few years now, we have also been included on the Shanghai ranking (ARWU) and most recently on the Leiden ranking. Close ties between teaching and learning, research and collaboration, are the mutual starting points for all activities. We offer many attractive professional degree programmes in, among others, medicine, psychology, law and engineering. The university has strong research within medicine, psychology, environmental science and computer science.
Örebro University’s main campus is a concentrated campus area in a stimulating setting with teaching and research facilities that meet the needs of most disciplines. Here you will also find the University Library, cafés, restaurants, a gym, and student housing.
Adjacent to Örebro University Hospital is Campus USÖ. The medical campus houses the School of Medical Sciences, the Medical Library, as well as the Clinical Research Centre which provides the university hospital with resources and support for patient-oriented clinical research.
