The Swedish system of higher education has been formally a unified system since the higher education reforms of 1977. In spite of being a unified system, there are a number of different types of institutions, including universities, university colleges, and specialised institutions. The university sector consists of twelve universities and three specialised institutions of higher education.
In total there are more than 45 different institutions (the total number has been dropping because a number of health science institutions have been merged with other institutions). The private sector consists of twelve institutions: one university, one specialised institution, one university college and one smaller non-university institutions.
