Johannelunds teologiska högskola or Johannelund School of Theology is a University College in Sweden.[1] is an independent college/theological seminary, founded in 1862 and located in Uppsala, Sweden. In addition to offering a three-year bachelor's degree in theology, the seminary offers graduate-level courses in cooperation with Uppsala University and Linköping University. Today there are circa 300 students at the college/seminary, most of whom are preparing for ministry in the Swedish Evangelical Mission or the Church of Sweden. In addition, there is a Bible school located on campus offering a one-year certificate in theology. Also, certain programs have specific profiles, such as counselling or charismatic theology.

The School is owned and run by the Lutheran Swedish Evangelical Mission (In Swedish: Evangeliska fosterlandsstiftelsen) and began its existence as a training institute for inland and overseas missionaries. For the last several decades, however, Sweden's own need for church leaders and clergy has been the school's primary focus, and most students enroll today with an eye to future ministry in Sweden, although a number of students also end up working internationally in a variety of mission agencies.

The School has several internationally well renowned scholars as affiliated researchers or professors, and publish the Nordic Academic Journal Theofilos in cooperation with NLA, Norway.

The School has exchange programmes with the following theological institutions:

Since 2015, the president has been Prof. Dr. Kjell O. Lejon
