Welcome to University of Borås

About the university

The University of Borås is a modern and progressive university. Our vision is clear; we are a creative vocational seat of learning and we produce inter- national high-quality education and research of high relevance to today’s society in cooperation with the busi- ness community and the public sector. At our six schools our students are offered educations which will make them highly desirable on tomorrow’s labour-market. Several of our educational pro- grammes are one of a kind in Sweden. This is why students from all over the country come to our university for their education. Also, for each coming year the University of Borås expands its international network by taking part in new exchange programmes. Our staff and students come from many different backgrounds, thus creating a varied and inspiring atmos- phere.

Today research is an essential and expanding part of the activities of our schools. A multitude of research projects and development projects are continually kept running in coopera- tion with corporations and public administration. Collaboration with the business community, the public sector and the local community is intense.

The Schools

The University of Borås is comprised of six schools, each distinguished by its own academic profile.

• Swedish School of Library & Infor- mation Science

• School of Business & Informatics

• School of Engineering

• School of Education & Behavioural Sciences

• Swedish School of Textiles

• School of Health Sciences

All schools offer English language courses and modules, though only four of our schools offer English lan- guage programmes that are conducted entirely in English.

Swedish School of Library and Information Sciences (BHS)

The focus and emphasis of the teach- ing today extends way beyond the concept of traditional libraries; it embraces the entirety of information management. As the country’s domi- nant educational institution in library and information science, it offers a wide variety of alternatives that lead to a host of different kinds of profes- sional positions. Information specialists are engaged in libraries, working in the world of literature and media or within organisations, involved in the development of information systems or other IT-related tasks. The school

offers both undergraduate and postgraduate educational programmes and has extensive research activities.

School of Business & Informatics (IDA)

The school offers educational programmes in business with speciali- zation in marketing, accounting and management and programmes in informatics with specialization in systems architecture, computer science and systems development. In

addition the school offers a joint pro- gramme in business and informatics,

a programme in entrepreneurship, a

programme for real estate agents, and

a programme in event management. The school is characterized by its close relations between students and teachers and with business and other organizations in its environ- ment. The school has an extensive network of contacts with universities all over the world. Several educational programmes offer the opportunity for students to study abroad for one semester. The distinctive profile of research at the school, is Trade and Services Development and within this the integration of business and infor- matics aspects in new projects. The research environment at the school is developing continually through the recruitment of professors, doctoral

studentsand through strengthening ties with business and public organi- zations.

School of Engineering (IH)

Education in engineering and tech- nology in Borås has a long history of association with both local business and industry, and the public sector. The school offers both the bachelor’s and the master’s degree in almost the whole field of engineering thus mak- ing it the school with the most com- prehensive offering of programmes of education in engineering in Sweden. Features like wide choice possibilities, access to the latest technology – both in theory and practice – and a readi- ness for flexibility in teaching meth- ods are all greatly appreciated by the students. Several of the master’s programmes are international. Research and technological development are important aspects of the studies. Many members of the teaching staff are involved in research and students participate actively in on-going research projects. Co- operation with business and industry in the region is a normal activity and includes, for instance, tailormade courses provided in a variety of ways. There are many interesting opportu- nities available for internships abroad.

School of Education and Behavioural Sciences (PED)

This school is the meeting place for three main education fields: teacher education, behavioural sciences and the social sciences. Students can gra- duate from here, for example, as pre- school teachers, primary school teachers, IT-pedagogues, Organisa- tional and Human Resource Devel- oper. The programmes of education of- fered by the school provides a good foundation for meeting tomorrow’s society and considerable energy is put into providing stimulating working methods and an interesting teaching environment. The success of offering opportunities to students to influence educational issues at the school has been singled out as an example wor- thy of emulation by all of the coun- try’s universities. During a relatively short period of years research has blossomed at the school. Its strength lies in its breadth, stretching from education and socio- logy to psychology and work science. Over the years the school has also succeeded in developing student ex- changes that reach out to as far-flung countries as Indonesia, Kenya, and to those nearer home like The Faro Islands, England, Iceland, Portugal and Spain.

Swedish School of Textiles (THS)

Borås has honoured the region’s century-old traditions in textiles by developing a modern, up-to-date centre for education in textiles – the only one of its kind in Sweden. The majority of the country’s fashion crea- tors and designers have been educated in Borås. Even at a European level, the Swedish School of Textiles is unique with its own full-scale industrial environment. Here, you will find workshops and laboratories used in teaching co-existing with research and developmental work in design and manufacturing. At any time of the academic year at least some of the school’s students are busy participating in fashion shows and competitions, and often win international praise for their work. Every year, graduating design students arrange a popular degree project exhibition. Seven different programmes of education make up the foundation of the school’s teaching activities cover- ing areas such as design, management studies, textile engeneering and hand- loom weaving. There’s a massive input into research and the school aims to become one of the leading institutions in the textile field in Europe.

The School of Helalth Science (VHB)

The School of Health Sciences focuses on undergraduate nursing education – Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Furthermore, the school offers a wide range of specialist study pro- grammes for qualified nurses, independ- entcourses, commissioned courses as well as bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Caring Science. In collaboration with Karlstad Uni- versity and Växjö University, the School of Health Sciences admits postgraduate students in Nursing/Caring Science and offers postgraduate courses. Research at the School of Health Sciences is organ- ised in two research environments: Car- ing context and Caring and existence. The main objectives of the research environments are to support on-going research projects, initiate new projects, as well as implement research results into the study programmes at the School of Health Sciences.

International Student Services

Preparing for your studies in Sweden is sure to be an excit- ing and anxious time for you. As we are aware, you are sure to have many questions about what it is like to move to Sweden as a foreign student. Therefore we have prepared this information to guide you through the basic information you need to know to prepare for your trip. Every year a number of students are not able to study as planned because of misunderstandings about the start- ing date of the programme, residence permits, and and other issues such as accommodation and health insur- ance problems. Therefore you should carefully read through the online information we have prepared for new students. Please pay special attention to the section titled before arrival. If you have any questions you should feel free to contact Interna- tional Student Services and we will do our best to help you.

Health Insurance

Students must have a comprehensive medical insurance when coming to Sweden. In fact, medical insurance is often needed before applying for your residence permit, which means this should be arranged as soon as possible.

The following students groups

need to register for a private health insurance:

• Masters student admitted to a 1-year programme

Important note: Masters students admitted to a 1-year programme cannot register for a Swedish personal identity number. This means that they do not have the right to free health care and will have a harder time com- ing into the Swedish system.

The following student groups do not need to register for a private health insurance:

• Exchange students

• Masters students admitted to a 2-year programme (read note below)

• Bachelor students

• All students who are citizen of a EU/ EEA country

Important note: Masters students admitted to a 2-year programme and Bachelor students can register for a

Swedish personal identity number that gives them the right to the same free health care as Swedish people. Note that this right only exists after registering for such a number. Students from the EU/EEA should register for a European Medican Insurance Card from their Social Insurance office. You can read more about what a Swedish personal iden- tity number is and how to register for it under the section titled “Swedish Personal Identity Number”.

Signing up for a health insurance plan

Students are responsible for arranging their own insurance, and evaluating the alternatives. A few alternatives are listed below that are accepted in Sweden.

www.caremed-travel.com

www.students-insurance.eu

ips-lippmann.hofstaete.nl

Refund option

The insurance plans listed above provide a refund option for students who are unable to come to Sweden to study as initially planned. Refer to the individual plans for the details on the refund option.

Residence Permit

If you are a citizen of any other coun- try than a Nordic country or an EU/ EEA country then you need to apply for a residence permit. The permits are granted by the Swedish Migrations

Board (www.migrationsverket.se/), and

you are required to have the permit be- fore you move to Sweden. You should apply as soon as possible after you are accepted.

Important points to remem- ber when applying:

1. Obtaining a residence permit can be a lengthy process and we recom-

mend you to apply 12 weeks before you plan on coming to Sweden.

2. You must prove to the Swedish Migra-

tion Board that you will have a guar- anteed sum of money at your disposal throughout the entire period of your studies. The Migration Board sets the amount, currently SEK 7,300 per month for ten months out of each year of your studies. Note that the money has to be on your personal bank account.

3. Make sure to include all the neces-

sary documents when applying for your visa. You can see what docu- ments you need to enclose on the website of the Swedish Migration Board. If you do not include all docu- ments in your original application you will be moved to the back of the queue. This delay can mean you do not receive your visa in time for your studies. Keep in mind that some students need to include proof of health insur-

ance when applying for the residence permit. View the health insurance section for details.

EU/EEA citizens

If you are a student from an EU/EEA country, then you have the right to reside in Sweden. Therefore you do not need to apply for a residence permit. However, you need to register for the right to residence no later than three months after entering the country. Nordic citizens do not need to apply for any sort of right to reside.

Plane tickets and arrival information

In this section you can find informa- tion about arriving in Sweden and how to find your way from the airports and central station to your student room as well as taxi information. Borås is located 70 km directly east of Göteborg. If you are flying into Borås most of you will arrive at Land- vetter International Airport. If you fly with Ryanair, Germanwings, or Wizz Air you will arrive at Göteborg City Airport (Säve).

We recommend purchasing plane tickets early as flights are booked early by incoming students. It can be a good idea to arrive in Borås before introduction begins to give yourself some time to acquaint yourself with the city. This applies especially to students who have not yet arranged for accommodation.

Arriving to Landvetter International Airport

Landvetter airport is located halfway between Borås and Göteborg. This is the main airport in Göteborg. The airport bus is called Flygbussarna and costs SEK 80. The busride should take around 30-40 minutes. Take the bus towards Borås and get off at either the Central Station (Borås Resecent- rum) or the City Centre (Södra torget). For a detailed timetable please see:

www.flygbussarna.se. Click on the

British flag in the upper right corner for a translation into english.

Arriving to Göteborg City Airport (Säve)

Take the airport bus called Flygbussar- na to the Göteborg central bus station (also called Nils Ericson Terminal). The airport bus costs SEK 50 and you may pay with € or £. For a timetable

please see: www.flygbussarna.se

Arriving in Göteborg

From the central station in Göteborg you can either take a bus (number 100) or train to get to Borås. If you take the bus you can either get off at Borås Central Station or Södra torget. The bus or train ride to Borås from the central station will take approximately 50 minutes and costs about SEK 80. Make sure to buy your ticket before you get on the bus or the train, as this will make the trip much cheaper.

Finding your way to student accommodation (AB Bostäder accommodation only)

From the central station (Borås Rese- centrum) in Borås the easiest way to get to arrive to your landlords office to pick up your keys is by taking a taxi. Take the taxi to Våglängdsgatan 19 B, but make sure to note their opening hours. You can also get to your student room by taking a bus. If you are at Södra torget (in walking distance from the central station) then you can take a bus that will drop you off close to both Distansgatan and Tunnlands- gatan. Take Bus number 1 toward “Brämhult” to the bus stop called “Fjärdingskolan”. From here you are only a short distance to either student houses. (See page 31 for a city map.)

Accommodation

International students at the Uni- versity of Borås are not guarenteed accommodation and are not assisted in finding accommodation by the university. Finding accommodation is completely the responsibility of individual students. Please note that the most up to date information regarding accommodation can always be found on our website.

Finding a room

The university will send out informa- tion via email at a later stage to tip students on how to find a room. This information can also be found online in the accommodation section. A limited number of rooms will be released in the middle of July by the rental agency AB Bostäder. An electronic translation guide will be sent to students explaining how to make the booking when the process has opened. However, the limited number of rooms means many stu- dents will not be able to book a room and will need to arrange their own accommodation. On our website you can read more on how to search for a room in Borås.

Youth hostels/hotels within the Borås area:

If you arrive to Borås without accom- modation you can stay at one of the following hostels/hotels. Remember to book a room at a hostel/hotel prior to your arrival, if you have yet not found long term accommodation. More tips on temporary accommodation can be found on our website.

Getting settled

Swedish Personal Identity Number

In Sweden all citizens have a personal identity number, or “personnummer”. This number is used as a way of iden- tifying yourself in all official trans- actions, at the hospital, bank, obtain- ing an ID card, etc. If you intend on staying in Swe- den for more than a year then you should register for a personal identity number at the local tax office, or “Skatteverket”. You will then receive a number which consists of ten digits:

your year, month, and date of birth, plus four extra digits. If you were born March 17th 1979, then your number could look like this: 790317-4361.

Who can receive Swedish personal identity numbers?

Only students who have a residence permit lasting longer than 12 months can apply for a Swedish personal identity number. The length of the permit is based on the length of the

programme you are admitted to. The students likely to receive a residence permit longer than 12 months i.e. a 2-year MSc programme or a 3-year BSc programme. 1-year MSc pro- gramme students are not eligible for this number as their residence permits normally lasts 10 months or less. To apply for the number you should bring your passport, residence permit, registration papers from the university showing how long your studies will last, and if you are married then a marriage certificate.

Skatteverket Address: Torggatan 23 Visiting hours: Mon-Fri: 10.00-16.00 Telephone: 0771-567 567

Working in Sweden

International students are allowed to work for the duration of their residence permit. Full-time studies require 40 hours of work a week and are difficult to combine with part- time work. Please notice that oppor-

tunities for part-time work in Sweden are limited and that most jobs require knowledge of Swedish, so students should not plan on finding a job to support themselves financially. To work you should have a Swed - ish personal identity number (refer to the section on Swedish Personal Identity Number for details), or if you do not qualify you should receive a different registration number from the tax office, called a coordination num- ber, or Samordningsnummer in Swed- ish. You can receive the number from the tax office at Torggatan 23.

Working in Sweden after graduation

International students have the right to apply for a work permit in Sweden after graduation provided they have a job offer that pays enough to sup- port yourself and fulfills a few other requirements. You will find more information on the website of the Swedish Migration Board at

www.migrationsverket.se.

Bank account

Opening a bank account

To open a bank account in Sweden

you should be prepared to bring with you the following:

Passport.

Residence permit.

• Letter of admission or registration papers from the university showing how long your studies will last (they should be stamped and signed by the University. The Student Centre or the International Coordinator in room J414 can help you with this)

Available banks

• SEB, Kyrkängsgatan 8

• Handelsbanken, Stora Torget

• Swedebank Sjuhärad AB, Allégatan 55

• Nordea, Torggatan 11

Important information regarding bank cards

If you do not have a Swedish personal identity number (given only to students who have a residence permit of a year or longer) you will only be able to get a card so you can withdraw money from your account. If you have a Swedish personal identity number the bank will grant you a card called a Maestro card where you can make payments at stores in Scandinavia where the money is taken directly from your account. It is similar to a visa card but cannot be used online or globally. If you need to make a payment online you can either use another account or ask your bank for special instructions on how to make an online payment.

Please note that in Sweden banks require you to be in the country for three years until before they will give you a visa card.

ID cards

Swedish ID’s are only granted to students who have a Swedish Personal Identity Number, but are unfortu- nately a challenge to get. When applying, you will need to bring your passport as well as a receipt showing that you have paid the appli- cation fee of SEK400. ID cards are issued by the Skatteverket (Tax Of- fice) in Gothenburg, at Östra hamn- gatan 16 on the outside of the mall called Nordstan. You cannot apply for an ID card at the Tax Office in Borås.

Exams

Registering for exams

Students must register for all exams.

You register for an examination online

at the Student Centre’s website. Go to

www.hb.se – in English – click on “Student” and then on the banner “registration for exams”. If you are a student with a University identifica- tion number instead of a Swedish personal identification number (social security number) you should register by sending an e-mail to studentcent- rum@hb.se. A student who registers after the final date of registration, may only sit for the examination providing that the seats are available in the examination room.

Special assistance

A student who is in need of any spe-

cial assistance or arrangements on ac- count of disabilities, must personally notify the examination coordinator at the department in question.

Re-exams

If you have failed an examination you have the right to retake the exam. Each examination must be offered at least five (5) times, at least three (3) of these must be within a year.

Examination at another University

If there are valid reasons for it, a student may sit for an examination at some other university/university college. The student must contact the examination coordinator at the department in question well in ad- vance. Foreign students who return to their home university, may be offered the possibility to sit for an examina- tion in their home country on condi- tion that the student is enrolled at University of Borås. The examination procedures fol- lowed must ensure the same standard of security as exists at University of Borås, which usually means that the

examination would take place at a Swedish Embassy/Consulate.

Examination room/hall

The place of the examination will be communicated to the students at the earliest possible time, and not later than the day before the examination, either through the timetable pro- gramme called KronoX, or by some other method that will be announced by the department concerned.

Seating arragements

The examination supervisor will give instructions regarding the seating arrangement for the occasion.

Examination hours

Students must be in the examination room 15 minutes before the com- mencement of the examination. The doors to the examination room will close at that time. The hours for the commencement and termination of

the examination must be strictly fol- lowed. No filling in of examination forms and answer sheets is allowed when the examination time has expired.

Late arrivals

An examinee arriving more than 30 minutes late to sit for an examination will not be allowed to participate. After 30 minutes from the starting time of the examination, the doors will reopen to admit students who have arrived after the starting- time specified under the heading “Examination hours”. However, such a student loses the correspond- ing amount of time allowed for the examination.

Identification

At the time of the examination, the examinee is required to produce a valid identification document (ID card, driver’s license, EU passport). A

student who is not able to produce an approved identity card will not have the right to sit for an examination and will consequently be turned away from the examination room.

Personal belongings

Personal belongings, which are not absolutely necessary for the examina- tion must be placed in strict ac- cordance with instructions given by the supervisor. The use of mobile telephones is strictly prohibited. All mobile telephones must be switched off.

Examination aids

Examination aids that are permitted for use during the examination will be ex- pressly stated on the cover of the exami- nation paper. Only these are to be used. Scribbling paper and paper for writing answers are provided by the superv.

Consequences of cheating

University of Borås views cheating with the utmost seriousness. Every suspiction of cheating will be reported to the rector for further investigation. Disciplinary measures for any estab- lished act of cheating at an examina- tion can result in a warning or suspen- sion.

Toilet visits and breaks

The name and times (leaving the room and returning) for visits to the toilet or other permitted breaks will be noted on a special list. Breaks for smoking, rest or fresh air are normally not allowed.

After the examination

An examinee may leave the examina- tion room no earlier than after 40 minutes from the start of the exami- nation. An examinee who has termi- nated the examination is not allowed

to hang around in the vicinity of the examination locality.

Study credits

The academic year in Sweden is divided into two semesters. Each semester covers 20 weeks of full time studies, 1 week equals 1,5 academic credits. Hence, a fulltime student studies courses amounting to 30 cred- its each semester. One academic credit equals 1 ECTS credit (European Credit Transfer System). A course is usually worth 7,5 or 15 academic credits and can be of different levels.

Grading system

The grading system at the university varies depending upon your depart- ment. Most departments use a three- level scale of Fail, Pass, and Pass with distinction, while some use a four- level scale: fail, 3, 4, 5 where 5 is the highest grade. The university is cur-

rently in a transition phase in chang- ing grades to a new European wide scale (F/E/D/C/B/A).

Degrees awarded

Students who have successfully com- pleted a programme will be awarded a Degree of Master (One Year) or (Two Year) depending upon the length of your studies. Individual academic in- stitutions outside of Sweden set their own policy on how to translate Swed- ish degrees. In all cases we are aware of that, Sweden’s reputation as a first- rate education destination has meant degrees awarded in Sweden are given very generous recognition by institu- tions elsewhere. However, if you have plans to continue your education at a specific university, you may want to check beforehand how they translate a Swedish degree.

Borås

Borås is a cosy student city where all you need is within walking or biking distance. The city is well known as the host of several of Sweden’s trendiest and inviting cafes with ideal sidewalk seating for enjoying the weather during the spring and summer. Borås is also a city identified with its nature as the city parks, bathing areas, and popular zoo are highly recommend and well frequented by the local inhabitants. In addition, a quick ten minute walk from the city centre takes you to the shopping area called Knalleland, which has six million shoppers on a yearly basis.

Shopping

Recent studies have shown that food prices are among the lowest in Sweden. This is even true for rent, as accommodation in Borås is very cheap on a nation wide basis. More money to spend is always a good thing! Shopping in Borås brings millions of tourists to the city each year. The city centre, stadskärnan, is a mix of smaller shops as well as bigger chains (including of course numerous H&M department stores). The shopping area Knalleland, which lies just outside the city centre, is a popular area for both Borås citizens as well as tourists. Here you can find a mix of malls, bargain shopping, and speciality shopping all gathered conveniently close to the city.

Culture and Entertainment

Borås has an exciting cultural life that caters to the more typical as well as the exotic needs. The cities culture

house houses a theatre, library and art museum. You can also find the “K- marked” café The Red Room, which still holds its classic seventies style interior. During May every year, the culture house is the home of culture nights that brings in visitors of all ages. Those who are interested in film can find two movie theatres to choose from: The art house cinema known as the “Röda Kvarn” shows movies in a theatre from the early 1900’s while a more modern cinema constructed 2001 offers new releases on six screens. The cities numerous cafés, pubs, restaurants and night clubs guarantee Borås has lively entertainment year round.

The sport city

Those who are interested in sports can find a lot to offer in Borås. The area around Knalleland has numerous athletic facilities including the newly built Borås Arena. The arena is the home of the football club Elfsborg, who are 2006 champions of the top Swedish league, the allsvenskan. It is also the home for concerts and other events. Tennis courts, ice rinks, floor hockey and curling halls can be found in the vicinity while outside the city are golf courses, riding venues and go cart tracks.

Summer Thursdays in Borås

Summer Thursdays are held during July and August. These evenings are the home of free concerts in the city centre and evening shopping. Thou- sands of people gather in front of the outdoor stage to see a collection of established stars as well as new talents.

Borås Zoo

The Borås Zoo, also known as “Swe- den’s first Africa”, lies shortly outside the city centre. The zoo was founded in 1962 and was the first in Sweden that allowed the animals to roam freely in large enclosures. Today more than 80 different species are shown for visitors from far and near. The zoo’s main theme is the large African zoo, but that are also a variety of Asian as well as European animals.

The Green City

Borås is a city surrounded by nature. Wherever you find yourself you are close to forests, lakes and open areas. Rya åsar, a nature reserve located close to the city, is a popular destination that has free growing nature accom- panied by dizzying views. If you like jogging there are 75 kilometres of lighted trails to choose from. Turn to the tourist office for more details about trails and hiking in the area. Even the city centre is full of

green. The cities numerous parks are

wonderful places for having a picnic

in the grass or perhaps a game of

Swedish kubbspel at the park. The park Annelundsparken is an idealic setting a stonecast from the city centre. Here you can find barbecues, playgrounds, places to play, as well as more green areas ideal for socialising with friends or lying in the sun.

Sweden

Sweden in Brief

Sweden is one of Europe’s largest countries by area with its 450 000 square kilometres, situated in northern Europe. Sweden is a modern Nordic country that is known for its welfare system, its high level of equality between men and women and of course, companies like Volvo, Ikea, Ericsson, H&M and SKF. Sweden has a population of 9 million and is a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary form of govern- ment. Sweden is also a member of the European Union since January 1995, but does not use the common currency, Euro, but the Swedish Crown (SEK).

Language

The official language in Sweden is Swedish, but English is taught as a second language in school and most Swedes can speak and understand English very well. Sweden is a Ger- manic language and uses the standard Latin alphabet plus three additional letters, å, ä, ö. Many foreigners remark that spoken Swedish sounds very sing- songish or melodic.

Swedes

Swedes like all other cultures have a number of stereotypes commonly associated with them. Swedes are organised, well-educated people who feel equally at home shopping on a busy city street as they would be in their cottage in the middle of a forest. Swedes are often characterised as being shy, stylish and modest people. Historically Sweden is known for it’s neutrality, and perhaps this can ex- plain why many foreigners feel that

Swedish people tend to avoid open conflicts and debates. Despite being one of the world’s most modern and sophisticated civi- lizations Swedes also have an inher- ently close relationship to nature. This attachment to nature can perhaps be best understood by remembering that only a few generations ago Sweden was a very rural country as opposed to many other European countries. There is a unique Swedish word, lagom, which may give the best in- sight into the Swedish psyche. The word is difficult to translate into other languages, but can be best described as meaning “not to much, not too little, but just right”. Perhaps you can find out for yourself exactly what you think this word means.

Climate & Surroundings

The Swedish climate is not as cold as one first would assume. Due to the presence of the Gulf Stream in the Atlantic, temperatures can reach around 30C during summertime (about 85 degrees F), although winters usually bring snow and much colder weather, especially in the northern parts of Sweden. Sweden is also the home of the legendary northern mid- night sun and tourist attractions such as the Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi, the amusement park Liseberg, its many lakes and natural reservoirs and its beautiful and wild archipelago.

Education

Sweden is proud of its ambitious edu- cational system with the oldest univer- sities dating back to the 15th century. Sweden is also the home of the Nobel Prize, the world’s most prestigious academic distinction. The Swedish educational system, with few excep- tions, has no tuition fees, regardless of where you as a student come from. Many students studying in Sweden come from abroad – approximately 7.5 percent of the student body, which makes Sweden one of the world’s most inclusive countries for education. And there is always room for more!

Equality between men and women

One of the main principles of Sweden is that men and women are equal and should be economically indepen- dent of each other. Other important ambitions are that men and women should share responsibility for raising children. Sweden has the world’s most generous parental leave system that allows parents to be home with their parents for up to 16 months with pay. Some of these months are even man- datory for the father to take. It is also important to note that women and men’s opinions and employment positions should not be affected by their gender. It is entirely normal for women in Sweden to be in positions of power and their opinions

are valued equally with men’s. After the latest election in 2006, 47 percent of the parliamentary members are women, which is one of the highest numbers in the world. Students coming from countries where gender differences are stronger than in Sweden should make special care to show an understanding of the gender equality of Sweden.

“A nice experience”

25-year-old Rana Tahir Ilyas flew from the city of Gujranwala in Pakistan and left the National Textile Uni- versity Faisalabad in the autumn of 2008 to study at the master’s programme in Applied Textile Management at the University of Borås.

How come you chose to study at the University of Borås? “The University of Borås is well known for its textile educa- tion. In addition, Sweden lets foreign students come here and study free of charge.” “Studying in an admirable atmos- phere like this is a nice experience. There are a lot of students and people from all over the world, who provide the city with a multicultural environ- ment. I have learnt many new things from a different culture like this. The University has invited several famous lecturers to give us the chance to learn from them. Despite the fact that the ways in which you acquire learning differ between here and my home university, it has turned out that the Borås way is more efficient.”

it has turned out that the Borås way is more efficient.” What was it like mov-

What was it like mov- ing to another country? “Moving to Sweden was exciting. It is always hard to move to another country, with a completely different culture, lifestyle and climate, but I had no problems at all adjust- ing to the city or the University. I really enjoy coming to a country as beautiful as this with all the lakes and forests. It is my first time abroad, and I have encountered everything from a different climate, culture and religion to different social and economic struc- tures and education systems.”

What was good about the Univer- sity in your opinion? “We have learned a lot through discussion and presentations, which has helped me find my hidden talents and qualities. I have learned how the whole textile chain of values works and how to best handle it in order to come to terms with its shortcomings.” “I must say that the University puts a great deal of effort into listen- ing to the students’ ideas, thoughts, rights and problems. That is an important aspect that all universities should work with.”

Do you have any hints for recent arrivals? “I have to alert everybody to the im- portance of being on time for lectures, as those are important to your studies. Apart from that, the weather can be a bit harsh sometimes. That is some- thing to keep in mind, especially for students from Asia.
