Facts About Umeå University
Umeå University is a comprehensive research university located at the doorsteps of the fashionable city of Umeå, Sweden. Formally founded in 1965, it is the flagship university in Northern Sweden and the country's fifth oldest institution for higher education. Even better, the school is ranked in the top 1% of universities in world rankings. The university is also renowned for its highly-ranked Institute of Design and its distinguished research into the genome of Norway Spruce and Populus tree.
The university began as a provisional institution and a spin-off from already established institutions in 1947. Initially, the idea to open the university in Northern Sweden was rejected. However, after years of commitment from doctors, dentists, politicians, and locals, the institution was finally inaugurated in 1965. Through strategic growth and development, backed by collaborative and distinctly non-hierarchical culture, the university quickly morphed into a world-class institution.
