Lund University (Swedish: Lunds universitet) is one of Europe's most prestigious universities[4][5][6][7][8] and Scandinavia's largest institutions for education and research,[9][10][11] consistently ranked among the world's top 100 universities.[12][13][14][15][16] The university, located in the city of Lund in the province of Scania, Sweden, traces its roots back to 1425, when a Franciscan studium generale was founded in Lund next to the Lund Cathedral, arguably making it the oldest institution of higher education in Scandinavia followed by studium generales in Uppsala in 1477 and Copenhagen in 1479. The current university was however not founded until 1666 after Sweden had won Scania in the 1658 peace agreement with Denmark.[17]
