Uppsala University

Uppsala University (UU) is the oldest university in Scandinavia, founded in 1477. Campus Uppsala is located 70 km north of Stockholm and 30 km from the international airport Stockholm Arlanda. Campus Gotland is our campus in Visby on the island of Gotland, in the Baltic Sea. In total, the university has about 45 000 students. Uppsala University is one of the top universities in the world according to major rankings.

There is an organised bus trip to Lapland which also stops in Uppsala that a lot of international students take. I had to skip some lectures but it was more than worth it, one of the most beautiful, fun and special trips I have made so far.
