Founded in 1477, Uppsala University is Sweden’s first university. As such we have a long history and rich traditions. But first and foremost we are a modern, broad and dynamic research university with a threefold clear mission to conduct first-class research, provide education of the highest quality and interact with society. Education and research are conducted in nine faculties: theology, law, arts, languages, social sciences, educational science, medicine, pharmacy and science and technology.
Uppsala University is a sought-after cooperative partner for universities all over the world. As an internationally leading university, we must develop cooperation and exchanges with leading universities in other countries, and offer research and educational environments which attract researchers, teachers, post docs, students and PhD students from across the world. Uppsala University must play an active role in global society and promote development, creativity and innovation, thereby contributing to global development.
