A leading European university in one of the world’s most dynamic capitals

Stockholm University, in the capital of Sweden, is characterised by openness, innovation and collaboration. Ranked among the world’s top 100 universities, Stockholm University is one of Europe's leading centres for higher education and research in human science and science.

Stockholm University was founded in 1878 with the ambition to revitalise higher education in Sweden. Since its inception, close contact with the wider world and active exchange of knowledge and experience have been integral to this vision.

Currently, the university has 33,000 students, 1,600 doctoral students, and 5,500 members of staff active in the scientific areas of human science and science. We offer 190 programmes and 1,700 courses in science, humanities, social sciences and law, including 75 master’s programmes taught in English. The university has a total revenue of SEK 4.93 billion.

With a global perspective and through collaboration with others, Stockholm University contributes to the development of knowledge. Education and research in human science and science in the international frontline, as well as in interdisciplinary work, make this possible. We make knowledge accessible to all through dialogue, participation in public debate and the development of society.
