Application procedures

Exchange studies

Are you a student in another country thinking about coming to Sweden? Or are you a Stockholm university student planning to study abroad one semester or two? Exchange studies are a great way to gain new experiences.

PhD studies

The Department of Environmental Science offers PhD studies in atmospheric science, (eco)toxicology, organic and inorganic environmental contaminants, and biogeochemisty.

Human activities have had a profound impact on the environment – global warming, pollution, ocean acidification, loss of biodiversity, to name but a few. Developing solutions to environmental challenges in the 21st century requires a holistic approach if we are to become a sustainable society. Environmental scientists contribute the knowledge and tools to tackle these challenges. It could be you!
