Founded in 1477, Uppsala University is Sweden’s first university. We are a broad research university with well-defined missions: to conduct research and education of the highest quality and to collaborate with the surrounding community in various ways to help make the world a better place. Perhaps our core strength is our combination of living traditions and constant renewal. The regeneration of knowledge is fuelled by the fact that our expert teachers and researchers continuously encounter curious, critical, and active students. We are ranked among the top 100 universities in the world. Our nine faculties create opportunities not only for the pursuit of in-depth subject knowledge but also for cross-disciplinary research and teaching. We uphold our academic independence and at the same time forge relations with the wider world. We collaborate with the best universities in the world. The flow of students, teachers, and researchers between universities abroad and Uppsala University is crucial to the dissemination of knowledge, ideas, and expertise, both within the University and in society at large.
