Inspiring academic environment

On campus there are of course lecture halls and libraries, but also restaurants and cafes, student housing, a students’ union, and the unique opportunity to swim in the sea; in other words – an inspiring study environment.

BTH has bilateral agreements with universities around the world and cooperates with around 70 European partner universities. Approximately 70 different countries are represented at BTH through its staff and students.
