The aims of the research programme are in line with the university college’s diaconal history. In 1851, the first nurse training course in Sweden was launched by Marie Cederschiöld under the auspices of Ersta diakoni. The first socially oriented programme at national level began at the turn of the last century in the form of diaconal training at the Stora Sköndal Foundation.
Today Ersta Sköndal University College is owned by Ersta diakoni, Stora Sköndal Foundation and Bräcke diakoni, divided into three campuses located in Södermalm, Stockholm, Stora Sköndal, south of Stockholm and Hisingen, Gothenburg.
The historical background has resulted in human health, welfare, and vulnerability being the focus of study and explains how research fields have developed and given the university its specific profile.

Lilla Akademien, best translated as "The Junior Academy", is a unique school specialising in classical music. Housed in an historic building in the Stockholm district Norrmalm, it was founded in 1994 by a group of music teachers under the leadership of Nina Balabina. In its early years, it provided instrumental tuition for young children at the end of the school day, but since 1998 it offers full-time tuition in music and regular schooling for children from 6 years and up. It eventually expanded to include a gymnasium or senior high school, and in 2005 the first graduates got their high school diplomas in the traditional Swedish manner. In a few years, Lilla Akademien has become one of the most significant institutions for the education of young musicians in Scandinavia, and has established itself as an important part of the Stockholm music scene, performing numerous concerts across the country every year. In 2006 Lilla Akademien opened a post-gymnasial 'Pre-college' one-year programme to help bridge the gap between school and higher musical education.
The aim of Lilla Akademien is to give all of its pupils a solid musical foundation on which to build their lives, whether or not they choose to become professional musicians as a profession. The musical life of the school is intense, and great care is taken to foster a joyful rather than competitive spirit. Priority is given to the creation of an artistic personality for each pupil, and individuality is encouraged. Many of the students at the school have backgrounds in countries other than Sweden, which the school is very proud of. They feel that this reflects the multicultural flavour of Stockholm.
At Lilla Akademien children receive individual lessons in one or more instruments, including piano, organ, violin, viola, cello, double bass, recorder, flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, saxophone, trumpet, French horn, trombone, tuba, harp and percussion. Class music lessons include music theory, aural training, music history, and - in the gymnasium - musical analysis. Singing in the school choir is compulsory up to the age of 17. The music programme is complemented by courses in dance, visual arts and foreign languages. The school follows the Swedish national curriculum and also offers after-school activities for the younger children whose parents work. The school has five orchestras and numerous ensembles. Rehearsals and concert performances are seen as a highly important part of the pupils' education. Pupils have performed both in Sweden and abroad and have been awarded major prizes in international competitions. Lilla Akademien's orchestras have been on many international tours to huge critical acclaim.
The school leadership strives to establish an extensive network of international contacts for pupil exchanges, guest teacher programmes, and concerts in other countries. Collaborative ventures have already taken place with similar schools in England, Estonia and other parts of Europe.
NKS is also Sweden's first public-private partnership (PPP) project in healthcare. The process for contracting, planning and building the hospital has been heavily criticized by an independent review published by Timbro (http://timbro.se/valfard/rapporter/skandalen-nya-karolinska). When the hospital was planned, there was an inadequate assessment of the costs of renovating the old Karolinska and the focus was on architectural design and only after a competition had been held was there feedback from a medical perspective. The hospital is smaller than the current Karolinska and does not meet the future needs of an ageing population with increasing healthcare demands. The contracting of the hospital was also not performed correctly as there was only one bid on the tender. The cost of the hospital is currently estimated to 50 000 million SEK and this does not take into account the costs of increasing the number of beds in other Stockholm hospitals or alternatively keeping the old Karolinska to have sufficient number of hospital beds for future needs. The building costs widely exceed those of other, similar projects in Europe and the US. The contracts and details of the New Karolinska have been classified as confidential information despite the bill being picked up by Stockholm taxpayers.
The school was founded during a period when the earlier volontaire sustem had stopped working and before state founded journalism schools started in the early 1960s. It was for a long time the only private journalism school in the entire Nordic region; only Germany and the USA at that time had similar private schools. Although there was a lack of educated journalists there was initial hesitation to the Poppius initiative, due to a belief that journalism could only be learnt through experience, not taught.
Set Poppius started the school with his wife Ebba. Set was the school manager and teacher while his wife was responsible for the school's finances. The school soon developed a good reputation amongst journalists, and many praised the school such as Majgull Axelsson, Beppe Wolgers, Svante Foerster, Carl Otto Werkelid, Malou von Sivers, Mona Krantz, Hans Nestius, Mats Lundegård, Sten Hedman, Magdalena Ribbing, Kristin Kaspersen, Fredrik Lindström and Carolina Neurath.
Set Poppius died in 1972 and Ebba Poppios ran the school for a few more years. The study school Vuxenskolan operated the school between 1974 and 1986. The school today is run by a non profit foundation and is financed solely by student tuition fees.

The Red Cross Home Foundation (Stiftelsen Rödakorshemmet) was formed in 1925 to provide training for nurses under the auspices of the Red Cross in Sweden, and has drawn inspiration from the principals and values of the red cross.
