Sweden’s leading university in the field of Work Integrated Learning (WIL) –
creating knowledge and development in the interaction between academia and the world outside.
Positioning is about what distinguishes us from other institutions of higher education. Put simply, what we especially want everybody to know about us. Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is what makes us unique and is our greatest strength; it is knowledge and development created in the interaction between academia and the world outside, and the act of making it available to more people.
For 20 years now, the Swedish Government has given University West a mandate to further develop Work Integrated Learning, and we are presently the leading university in terms of making WIL part of our educational programmes. WIL is also one of the research areas at University West.
