KTH Royal Institute of Technology
Established in 1827, KTH Royal Institute of Technology is Sweden’s oldest and largest technical university – and certainly also one of the nation’s most prestigious academic institutions.
With almost 15,000 students from nearly 100 nations, KTH has a global reputation for excellence. The university continues to nurture the world’s brightest minds, helping to shape the future.
One third of all university-level technical and engineering research in Sweden comes from KTH – which has a long history of ground-breaking research.
The school offers a wide range of master’s programmes in English, attracting students and researchers from around the world and contributing to the diverse, international atmosphere.
Student life at KTH combines the best of a dynamic and prestigious academic environment with all Stockholm can offer in terms of culture, natural beauty, entrepreneurial spirit and strong industry infrastructure.
The main KTH campus is located in downtown Stockholm, surrounded by beautiful old brick facades. A large park lies next door, and the campus itself is like a small village – filled with restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, a sports hall, student housing, and more.
The massive campus library is also a popular meeting spot – and even has a tree inside.
KTH also has smaller, but no less beautiful campuses in the suburbs of Haninge, Flemingsberg, Kista and Södertälje.
Not only is KTH overflowing with vibrant student life and activities, it also has played a vital role in pop culture. Sweden’s very first TV broadcasts were sent from the campus, the founders of Spotify and SoundCloud studied at KTH, and Sweden’s first nuclear reactor, also located at KTH, has even featured in a Madonna music video.
