Welcome to the small big city

Sweden’s second largest city, Gothenburg has become the country’s most popular place to study. Maybe it’s because of its industrial-romantic soul, maybe it’s the city’s diverse cultural attractions – we can only guess.

Whatever the reason, Swedes as well as foreign exchange students from all over the world come to Gothenburg to experience the city’s unique atmosphere, and the spirit of the small big city. There is always something to do here, and since most things lie in close proximity there is no need for long journeys between the city’s districts.

Students at the University of Gothenburg are not based on one single campus, instead they are spread out across different institutions all over the city. The Faculty of Arts is centrally located among beautiful surroundings, with nature close at hand.

We let you plan your studies in accordance with your individual areas of interest. Education within humanities is both broad and varied, whether you are interested in studying individual courses or towards a Master’s degree or Ph.D. We offer courses such as Scandinavian Studies, Viking and Medieval Studies, Religion, Culture and Society as well as a range of language courses.

At this site you will meet a selection of our international students, as well as Robert, a Theatre Studies lecturer. They all chose Gothenburg – and the Faculty of Arts. We hope you do too.
