Study in Uppsala

Our county is home to not one, but two world-famous universities: Uppsala University and the Swedish University of Agricultural Science. Their enviable connections with academic institutions around the globe mean the student and teaching community is richly international. And that feeling extends across all of the county, thanks to the many international students who choose to live in Uppsala.
