Higher Education in Sweden

Updated on 12 March 2018

Contrary to what many think, Sweden is a big country. In fact the area of Sweden is larger than California, and nearly as large as France or Spain.

For many around the world Sweden is known as a country of peace. Since 1814, Sweden has not been actively involved in any wars, which has been the most important prerequisite for the build-up of the modern Swedish welfare state.

The country is often described in terms of contrasts; innovative modernity and historical tradition, high technology and magnificent natural settings, rationality and beauty, land and water. Sweden is also known by its multinational brands, such as IKEA, Ericsson, Volvo and H&M. During the 20th century, Sweden evolved quickly from a poor agrarian country to one of the world’s strongest industrial nations. The point of departure for this “Swedish industrial miracle” was the country’s natural wealth of forests and ore, as well as a long series of ingenious inventions and an entrepreneurial tradition.

In Sweden the fruits of this economic success have been distributed more evenly among the population than in perhaps any other country. Sweden has become known world-wide for its high general standard of living, with publicly financed systems of economic security for all people in all phases of life.
