The best part for me is that the Karlskrona campus has a really positive, open minded and familiar student community where you feel you can talk to anyone at school

Overview

Karlskrona - the birthplace of Hyper Island

The history of Hyper Island started in 1996, with the first class of Digital Media in an old converted prison in Karlskrona. Right there, history was written when the first students, of what would eventually grow to become thousands and beyond, took those first steps in their learning journey together. More than 20 years later the Karlskrona campus remains as the best place for creative experimentation and innovation.

Declared a world heritage by UNESCO, Karlskrona is a city that lives and breathes history. With Sweden’s richest historical heritage right outside the door and a 360-degree ocean view, our students in Karlskrona develop their talent in an environment full of inspirational beauty. 

Being in the Karlskrona campus feels a lot like being in some kind of creative retreat. Although school can be challenging at times, the calm atmosphere helps a lot with focusing on my studies

The time to focus

The benefits of studying in Karlskrona are abundant; there are fewer distractions on the wind-swept islands, the fresh air seems to facilitate the flow of ideas, and the sense of freedom and closeness to nature allows for a nurturing learning environment.

The location of the school, right by the edge of the water, free of distractions, on the island Stumholmen, 5 minutes walk from central Karlskrona has proven to be a perfect spot for students to fully focus on their learning journey. 

Because the ambiance, it is really good chance for anyone who wants enough time to consider and to concentrate on shifting one’s career.

Make lifelong connections

You can study one of four programs in Karlskrona. Students from all programs sit together in the school building, allowing for plenty of cross pollination of skills and experiences across the programs.

Many students describe a feeling of being part of one big family at school and that they have made lifelong connections with their classmates. The close relationships are formed as a result of many different factors; the intensive team building at the beginning of the school year, the relative smallness of the city, and also perhaps because most students moved to Karlskrona to study at Hyper Island. No matter the reason, the friendships formed are real and many times lasting a lifetime.
