In light of the ongoing invasion of Ukraine, Malmö University would like to show its solidarity. The University is following the developments closely.

Support Ukraine

Malmö University is now preparing to receive students, teachers and researchers fleeing the war in Ukraine. The University wants to help these people create a meaningful everyday life and continue their studies, research and teaching as soon as possible.

Refugee students need scholarships to support themselves during their studies in Malmö, and doctoral students, researchers and teachers need to be offered visiting researcher grants for a limited period of time.

The University provides research-based knowledge, background and analysis on the war in Ukraine

As a university, our mission is to produce and disseminate knowledge based on evidence and experience. In times when propaganda, fact resistance and populism increase, it is essential that research-based knowledge reaches the public. Our researchers and faculties organise and participate in open seminars and other popular science events discussing the war in Ukraine and the current refugee situation. They also contribute with interviews and opinion pieces in the media.

Focus: The war in Ukraine

Students and staff

The University's International Office and HR Department have sated that our students or staff will have no business travel or studies in Ukraine, Russia or Belarus. However, there are a limited number of students and staff from these countries currently studying or working at Malmö University, who have family and friends in the countries. There are also a handful of Malmö students in neighbouring countries.

Scholars at Risk (SAR)

The University is now reviewing how our institution, in cooperation with the international network Scholars at Risk (SAR), can support Ukrainian academics in the current situation.

"The war in Ukraine is discussed daily"

IT security

The Swedish University Computer Network (Sunet) has increased their attention and monitoring due to cases of cyber attacks in the neighbourhood of Sweden. Magnus Wikforss, the University's head of IT, says we employees should also stay vigilant.

Collegial support for Ukrainian institutions, staff and students

The University supports the statement of solidarity with Ukraine from the Association of Swedish Higher Education Institutions (SUHF) and the European University Association (EUA).
