Education at the Swedish Defence University

We educate tomorrow's officers in the Swedish Armed Forces as well as students aiming for a career in the civil sector. International efforts are increasingly characterized by interaction between military and civil experts, and we provide an important forum for sharing knowledge and practice from both sectors.

In Sweden, this unique educational experience is only available here at the Swedish Defence University.
