Uppsala University (UU) is a comprehensive research university dedicated to advancing science, scholarship, and higher education. Uppsala University offers a great variety of basic and advanced-level programmes that attract students from Sweden and abroad. Founded in 1477, UU is the oldest university in the Nordic countries.

UU boasts a large number of ancient traditions, symbols, and festivities that have survived as a natural part of academic Uppsala today. For example, the Linnaean Gardens (which are the Uppsala University botanical gardens) are the oldest botanical gardens in Sweden.

Uppsala is the pre-eminent university town, where Uppsala students live in a cultural setting with roots harking back several centuries and experience student activities far beyond the ordinary.
