Student life


Uppsala University was founded in 1477 and is the oldest university in the Nordic countries. Today, the university has about 40,000 students. The university’s ancient traditions, expert knowledge, and comprehensive experience provide a stable foundation for all activities. Uppsala University is ranked among the top-100 universities in the world. Uppsala University is constantly evolving and recreating itself. New interdisciplinary programs of study, updating of campus settings, and the promotion of cutting-edge research are some of the key tools in this process. However, the strong foundation required for this ongoing transformation is the historical diversity of the University’s nine faculties and the tradition and culture handed down through the centuries.
