More about Göteborg University

Göteborg University College was established in 1891 with the help of private donations. The first classes were held by seven professors teaching seven subjects to twenty-one students, four of whom were women. In 1907 it became an independent university college with the same status as the two national universities of Uppsala and Lund. Göteborg University was formally founded in 1954 through the amalgamation of this college with the Medical College, which had been established in 1949. During the years a number of previously independent colleges have been incorporated into the University. Today Göteborg University can offer the most comprehensive range of courses and degree programmes in Sweden. Göteborg University has about 40 000 students, a staff of well over four thousand, and almost as many part-time teachers spread over approx. 70 departments.
