Language is of key importance for everyone

It is not unusual for media to portray the study of languages as exclusive interests, which only a small number of people occupy themselves with. What they are forgetting is that we use language all the time, every day, to communicate with the world around us.

Evaluations – a burden or a boon for quality?

Autonomy and freedom key issues for the future

As we approach the end of 2020 nothing is like usual. Institutional autonomy of higher education and academic freedom are now more important than ever, issues that have been questioned during the year.

University Director Eino Örnfeldt

Need for systematic development of working environment and equal working conditions

For most of us, the past year has seen a drastic change when it comes to where and how we conduct our work.

Being a doctoral student during the pandemic
