Uppsala University is a research university with well-defined missions: to conduct research and education of the highest quality and to collaborate with the surrounding community so as to help make the world a better place.
The University's nine faculties create opportunities not only for the pursuit of in-depth subject knowledge but also for cross-disciplinary research and teaching. Uppsala University upholds its academic independence and at the same time forges relations with the wider world.
The flow of students, teachers, and researchers between universities abroad and Uppsala University is crucial to the dissemination of knowledge, ideas, and expertise, both within the University and in society at large.
Uppsala University has about 40,000 students and 2,400 doctoral students. It has a teaching staff of roughly 1,800 out of a total of 6,500 employees. Twenty-five per cent of the 674 professors at the university are women.
