Local | Konstfack – best in Sweden

By on April 10, 2016

Konstfack continues to on QS Top Universitys list over the worlds top universitys and colleges with art and design focus.

In 2016 we are:

Best in Sweden
Second best in the north
Number 11 in Europe
41st place in the world

Last year we were in 51st place in the world and to climb ten places feels really good. We are constantly working to improve our programs and our new professors have certainly contributed as well as our small but sharp research. Right now, I feel that there is a strong energy in the house – many exchange students with other international projects and good cooperation between the different programs make the environment attractive and dynamic. Ranking lists will of course always be taken with a grain of salt, but they are a way to keep track of that we collaborate with the best. In the QS ranking, we see that our partner schools are in the same league as we – among the world leaders, says the College’s Principal Maria Lantz.

QS Top Universities is the leading global career and education network which annually publishes a ranking of the world’s universities in various fields. College of Arts in 2016 parts of all investments with Umeå University.
