SLU at Top Three in international ranking

Published: 27 February 2019

SLU is ranked as the third best university in the world in the world in the fields of Agriculture & Forestry by the QS organization, which now releases the list for 2019.

The Agriculture & Forestry list is led by the Wageningen University, The Netherlands, followed by Davis University of California, US, and then SLU. Last year, SLU made the fourth place, so the university has moved upwards. In the Vet Med category, SLU takes place 22, in fierce international competition.


"I especially want to thank all the talented employees who are behind this success", says a happy Vice-Chancellor Karin Holmgren. "It is thanks to creative and knowledgeable researchers and teachers, supported by highly competent technical and administrative staff that enables us not only to maintain a top ranking but also to move up the list."

"A good position in the rankings hopefully also makes it easier for SLU to recruit more good and ambitious students", Karin Holmgren says.
