Description

Stockholm University, founded in 1878, is one of the largest and oldest universities in Scandinavia.

When the institution first opened, it held public lectures in mathematics, physics, chemistry and geology – a tradition that still continues to this day, covering a diverse range of subjects.

Now home to almost 70,000 students, with an intake of 1,400 foreign exchange students annually, the university prides itself on its multicultural environment. Over 80 of its degree programmes are taught in English and Swedish language courses are available to all international students.

Stockholm University is one of Sweden’s pre-eminent centres for research within science, humanities and the social sciences. It is organised across four faculties, comprising 64 academic departments between them, with its main campus located north of the city, in the Frescati area of Stockholm.

Set in the middle of a National City Park – the world’s first – the university describes itself as ‘a campus university in a park environment’. It is surrounded by extensive woodland, flora and fauna, including some 800 species of flowering plants and over 100 species of birds, with the Baltic Sea inlet of Brunnsviken and beaches to its north.  

The campus is also famed for its modernist architecture, with buildings designed by the renowned Swedish architects David Helldén, Ralph Erskine and Carl Nyrén. Alongside its notable architecture are many public works of art. A sculpture park on campus includes contributions from artists Marianne and Sivert Lindblom, and Olle Baertling.

Stockholm University boasts a longstanding tradition of openness and innovation. Four of its researchers have previously received Nobel Prizes, while a fifth was awarded the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel.

With the city centre just a metro ride away from the campus, Stockholm students have easy access to all the city’s cultural and commercial amenities. The university’s international exchange arrangements mean study abroad opportunities are plentiful across Europe, as well as in America, at the University of Illinois.

I'm taking Stockholm University to court for their criminal negligence in ignoring my requests over the past 1.5 years for conflict resolution services because my master's thesis supervisor sabotaged my research and then blocked access to further educational resources by instructing my department not to communicate with me in any capacity. This is not just a departmental problem, but a university wide problem where the faculty have turned a blind eye to the Asian, Middle Eastern, and Turkish Studies department's wild misconduct in terms of discrimination against students. The uni even went so far as to change their examination regulations for first and second cycle studies at Stockholm University after I brought to the attention of the faculty the sections of the regulations which the staff in the Middle Eastern Studies dept violated to discriminate against me.

Stockholm University campus is very nice and so close to the nature. It was enjoyable in walking around the campus as it is located next to a national park. Lecturers, staffs and classmates were very friendly. The program I studied was mainly in English (some courses were only in Swedish). As an international master student, I was a bit frustrated about but it was understandable. It was super cool that there were some courses in either Swedish or English, which meant if an international student chooses that course, it will be taught in English. Hope the lecturers will consider to offer those courses originally only taught in Swedish with bilingual option.

At the Stockholm University the campus is huge and it has everything! Restaurants, a lot of places you can study - alone or with your friends, a big library, a bar… And not to mention the enormous variety of courses. Whatever you need, Stockholm University has it! I see a lot of students come in the morning and they stay until late at night, it's honestly peoples second home. I'm on my last year of bachelor in HR and I can honestly say that I'm going to miss the Stockholm University.
