Swedish Defence University

Swedish Defence University is a public military academy in Stockholm, Sweden. Colloquially known as Försvarshögskolan (FHS), it was founded in 1997 but its roots can be traced back as early as the 19th century following the establishment of the Artillery College at Marieberg. FHS was re-established as a national university college in 2008, enabling them to issue academic degrees, and eventually adopted its current name in 2015.
