Mid Sweden University (Mittuniversitetet) offers both face-to-face and online education.

Geographically, Mid Sweden University is located in the middle of Sweden. It is a young university, but its roots date back to as early as 1842, when the 'university' was still a teachers' education college in Härnösand. The university was established in July 1993, when the University Colleges of Sundsvall/Härnösand and Östersund were merged. In July 1995, the Sundsvall/Örnsköldsvik and Sundsvall Colleges of Health Sciences were also incorporated. Ten years later (2005), the Mid Sweden University became a full-status university.

Today, Mid Sweden University has three campuses in Härnösand, Sundsvall and Östersund, with approximately 15,000 students. Around 60% are campus students, while the rest engage in distance education via net-based courses and programs. Every year students from all over the world come to study at Mid Sweden University, which offers courses for international students at all three campuses.

The work of Mid Sweden University is based on undergraduate courses, research and co-operation with regional actors. There are some 700 independent courses, 50 study programs and 30 master programs offer at the university. The number of employees is around 900 (54 professors).
