Stockholm University in the capital of Sweden is characterised by its openness, innovation and collaboration. The university was founded in 1878 with the ambition to reinvent higher education in Sweden.

Education and research are closely linked at the University, which is one of Sweden’s largest establishments of higher education with 30,000 students and 5,000 employees.

Stockholm University has over 65 departments and fifteen research institutes and centres, and offers 75 master’s programmes and three bachelor’s programmes taught in English within science, the humanities, social sciences and law. We also offer Swedish language programmes.

Located in the Royal National City Park of Stockholm, you’ll find the centre of Stockholm with its dynamic city life only a few stops away from the campus area.

Four Nobel Laureates in Chemistry, and the appointment of the world’s first female professor of Mathematics in 1889, mark the university’s proud history.

Our researchers are leading contributors to the development of scientific research and our society, and participate as experts in both scientific and public international bodies; most prominently as members of the Nobel Prize committees who select the Nobel Prize winners each year.
