Swedish universities best in Europe


Sweden is the 'best' provider of higher education in Europe, second only to the U.S. in the world, a global study has found.

Sweden maintained its ranking from last year, and performed strongly in some key areas:

- research, with the most research articles per capita,
- overall quality, with the highest number of world class universities per capita, tying Switzerland,
- and connectivity, with the most extensive open access website material

The ranking of the 50 countries worldwide was done by Universitas 21, a global network of leading research universities. Lund University is currently the only Swedish member university.
