  1. Sweden is a Scandinavian nation of thousands of coastal islands, inland lakes, forests and mountains. Its principal cities, eastern capital Stockholm and southwestern Gothenburg and Malmö, are all on the sea. Stockholm is home to royal palaces, parkland and museums such as open-air Skansen. Its 13th-century old town, Gamla Stan, is set on islands joined by bridges and ferries.

    The order of precedence is based on their year of establishment as a university. Only Uppsala University (est. 1477[1]) and Lund University (est. 1666[2]) were actually founded asuniversities, whereas all the other universities were raised from högskola (university college) status to the higher university status after they had been founded.

    Two universities founded under Swedish rule, the University of Tartu from 1632 (now in Estonia) and the Royal Academy of Turku from 1640 (later established as University of Helsinki, now in Finland), as well as the University of Greifswald from 1456 (now in Germany but a fief held by Sweden 1631–1806, Swedish 1806-1815), are excluded from the list.

    Public university colleges

    Högskola (= university college or college in English) is an institution of higher education, similar to a university but typically smaller. Unlike a full university, a högskola cannot award a doctoral degree (PhD) in all academic fields. However, the Swedish government has granted the right to some högskola to award PhDs in several specific fields. Most of them also have agreement with other universities to conduct joint doctoral programs. The public högskola are:
