A simple indication of Racism in Sweden

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: Sweden is the most racist country

Submitted by Rudy (Sweden), Jun 29, 2009 at 11:34

I happen to be taking a programme in Peace and Development Studies at Växjö University. The programme consist of a major of 90 credits and other 90 credits taken from a multiple of disciplines in the school of social science. The 90 credits major is made up of three levels: Level A, 30 credits; level B, 30 credits; and level C 30 credits.

Until January 2009, only level A was tought in English; levels B and C were tought in Swedish. After taking level A, the department will normally expect international students to have a good grip of the swedish language in order to take the B and the C level, all for which are combined to form part of that programme. How does it sound? We had to push hard for the department to start ooffering the whole programme in English. Surprisingly, all the teachers in taking that programme do speak English pretty well.
