Gothenburg - a National Sports University

The Swedish Sports Confederation has given the University of Gothenburg together with Chalmers University of Technology the commission to become a so-called National Sports University. The objectives are to contribute to better educated coaches, higher quality in sports training, improved support to athletes and hopefully more medals at international championships.


The educations will start autumn term 2015. The top athletes will be subject to the same admission rules as other students, but the study programmes will be adapted to their needs. For example the possibility to study some courses as distance courses or study more efficiently during shorter periods.
- The education and research at the University of Gothenburg gets a new dimension with this investment. The cooperation between the University, Chalmers and the Swedish Sports Confederation is very promising, says Deputy Vice-Chancellor Mette Sandhoff.

Well functioning cooperation

The University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology have had a well functioning cooperation for a long time with for example shared departments and joint centres of expertise and research.
Chalmers University of Technology has since 2011 several sports technology related research projects. At the University of Gothenburg education and research within the sports field have been conducted for a long time.
