Linnaeus University is a modern university in south-eastern Sweden that pursues teaching and research in two cities, Växjö and Kalmar. Linnaeus University is the 6th largest university in Sweden with more than 31,000 students.
Linnaeus University has taken its name from Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778), the most famous and world-renowned Swedish scientist of the last few centuries. Carl Linnaeus was intrepid, curious and innovative. This is our key to inspiration. While the university is firmly rooted in the Småland region of southern Sweden where Linnaeus was born, our activities, like his, have no boundaries.
Linnaeus University has a strong international profile with 1,600 international students every year, 750 partner universities in more than 60 countries and with the first programme in English established more than two decades ago.
At Linnaeus University we want you to grow as a person. The study environment is characterized by modern facilities and an active student life with teaching and research staff in close proximity to students.
