With its eight faculties and a multitude of research centres and specialized institutes, Lund University is the largest unit for research and higher education in Scandinavia. Most of the university is located in Lund, but there are also several educational and research departments in Malmö. Furthermore, the University has a campus in Helsingborg and local study centres in several locations in Scania.The tradition of learning in Lund dates back to the Middle Ages, when there was a school for the training of priests. As the seat of the Archbishop, Lund was the spiritual capital of Medieval Scandinavia. The university was founded in 1666 in order to contribute to the Swedification of the provinces that had been conquered from Denmark in 1658. Since then it has developed into a modern centre for research and higher education, and today it occupies a leading position internationally, nationally, and regionally.
