Arcada launches new strategy

Arcada’s strategy aiming at 2030 has now been launched. The strategy, called Arcada at the forefront – We put education and culture to work for a rewarding and sustainable life, will be fully implemented from 2021. 

Arcadas vision in the new strategy is to be an active Swedish-language educational institution in a multicultural society. The environment of the UAS must be based on equality, openness and reliable quality. 

These are some of Arcada's goals aiming at 2030: 

Attention new students! How do you view knowledge?

Arcada is constantly striving to develop our education and teaching. That is why we have the research project Knowledge and learning in the post-digital, where we conduct research for example about how our students view knowledge and learning and how they use IT and different media.

If You have started studying this autumn, You will have received a personal invitation by e-mail to participate in the survey Me, My knowledge and Media 2020. The invitation contains a unique link to Your personal survey form, so therefore You should not share the link with anyone.
