Linnaeus University is one of Sweden’s newest higher education institutions. The university was formed when the University of Kalmar and Växjö University merged in 2010. So Linnaeus University is certainly not the country’s oldest university. But perhaps this makes us one of the most modern, characterized by new thinking.
Exactly like Carl Linnaeus himself, we have high ambitions and are not easily contented. We are a young university, full of curiosity, and we aim for a distinct and strong position in society. It goes without saying that our education and research shall positively affect and stimulate the region’s development. At the same time, we work to ensure that each individual student and researcher is given the opportunity to grow and reach their goals.
