Sweden is an amazing destination for international students eager to get their Bachelor's and Master's degrees. But what makes Sweden such a great attraction? Well, it's great universities, obviously. Because the weather, let's be honest, is on the colder side.

Based on The Academic Ranking of World Universities and Times Higher Education World University Rankings, we managed to create a list of 13 highly ranked universities. Some of the most popular ones among students are: Uppsala University (in Uppsala), KTH Royal Institute of Technology (in Stockholm), University of Gothenburg (in Goteborg), and Chalmers University of Technology (still in Goteborg).

World university rankings take into consideration the teachers' competencies, the quality of education, and student satisfaction, as well as the international student ratio, and the number of citations their research gets. So, there's a lot of work that goes into making this university rankings list and selecting the best academic institutions Sweden has to offer.
