Chalmers University of Technology is owned by a foundation and is therefore not subject to the Higher Education Ordinance. The governing of Chalmers is instead based on a set of rules set out by the board of Chalmers. Based on this set of rules, the Vice-President of Education and Lifelong Learning has decided on a number of governing documents which elaborate on the rules applicable for students and education at Chalmers. In the list below, you will find the main governing documents.
Even if Chalmers is not a state university, the Public Access to Information and Secrecy Act applies to us. This means that everyone is entitled to access public documents produced at Chalmers. Requests to access public documents should be sent to the registrar’s office firstname.lastname@example.org
