Study here

The Faculty of Science embraces all major subject areas within mathematics and the natural sciences. Research and education are closely connected and the Faculty offers international Master’s programmes as well as over 100 courses in English.

The University of Gothenburg is at the forefront of European marine research, and our marine courses connect theory with practical observation on, in and at the sea. The closeness to the sea makes for a particularly educational and stimulating study environment.
Other internationally renowned research areas include experimental physics, biochemistry, atmospheric science, climate, ecosystems, and systematics and biodiversity. The research within the field of cultural conservation is unique in the country.
