2015 marks the 50th anniversary for Umeå University, the largest institution of higher education in northern Sweden, with over 31,500 students.

Umeå University is renowned for its comprehensive educational approach and creative learning environments, including its large ‘American style’ main campus and contemporary Arts Campus by the riverside. The university is characterised by its openness and approachability. International students have been surveyed as the most satisfied in Sweden for four consecutive years.

Many of our more than 2,000 researchers and teachers are among the elite in Sweden and throughout the world. Designated environments of strong research include: Ecosystem changes, global health, infection biology, plant and forest biotechnology, solar fuels and welfare studies. The groundbreaking discovery of the CRISPR-Cas9 mechanism in bacteria, which became a gene editing tool now used in research labs worldwide, began in a laboratory here.
