Linnaeus University - a creative and international knowledge environment promoting curiosity, creativity, companionship and utility.
Linnaeus University is one of Sweden's youngest higher education institutions. The university was formed when the University of Kalmar and Växjö University merged in 2010.
Linnaeus University is located in Kalmar and Växjö. We have approximately 44,000 students in 150 degree programmes and 2,500 single-subject courses. Our high-quality research has had an impact, both nationally and internationally. It covers the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and engineering, and represents a number of well-established research domains. Examples are labour market policy, welfare issues and entrepreneurship, but also life sciences, aquatic ecology, and timber and energy technology.
Studying at Linnaeus University means being part of a dynamic environment where knowledge and new ideas flow freely. We believe in personal meetings here at Linnaeus University - for the more we meet and discuss, the more we develop ourselves and our ideas. Students will be able to find new skills and knowledge, while at the same time learning more about themselves, and researchers will discover new approaches.
