The School

The School

University College Stockholm gives training to some 600-700 students annually, in both full-time and part-time courses. The School welcomes students from a variety of denominational and non-denominational backgrounds, in a climate of academic rigor, international contact, and challenging issues.

A wide network of international academic and other institutional contacts provides a resource-base for international exchanges for students and professors. We also have a flow of international guests, students as well as visiting scholars.

University College Stockholm is a non-governmental university college owned by the Uniting Church in Sweden. It attracts students from all over Sweden, not just from the Stockholm region. A significant number of full-time students are candidates for the ministry in the Uniting Church, as well as in the Church of Sweden (Lutheran), and a programme in Eastern Christian Studies serves the expanding needs of orthodox churches.

University College Stockholm is a member of Stockholm Academic Forum (18 universities and the City of Stockholm) and The Association of Swedish Higher Education Institutions, where 37 universities and university colleges in Sweden are members (16 universities, 18 university colleges and 4 university art colleges).

We are happy to see the university college grow and the president is assisted by three vice presidents, each responsible for a department. PhD Linde Lindkvist is vice president, responsible for the Department for Human Rights/Stockholm School of Human Rights. ThD Sofia Camnerin is vice president, responsible for the Department of Religious Studies and Theology/Stockholm School of Theology. ThD Michael Hjälm is vice president, responsible for Department for Eastern Christian Studies/Stockholm School of Theology.

Stockholm School of Human Rights is the designation for our programmes in Human Rights, while Stockholm School of Theology is the designation for our two Theology departments.
