Study in Gothenburg

If you are looking for a place where you are encouraged to speak your mind and take an active part in your learning, if you share beliefs and values like equality and sustainability, and if you want to study in a great city close to enchanting Swedish nature, then we might be the right place for you. These pages explain what we can offer international students like you.

Gothenburg as a study destination

Gothenburg is the largest non-capital in Scandinavia. The Gothenburg region is not only home to more than one million people, but also home to leading global companies such as Volvo, Ericsson, and AstraZeneca. 

As the campuses of the University of Gothenburg are located all over the city, you as a student will never be far from the vibrant city life. The location of Gothenburg also provides you with easy access to stunning nature. A recreational walk in the forest, kayaking in a mirror-blank lake, or jumping into the ocean from cliffs in the archipelago will never be far away.
