The Organization of Studies in the New System of Higher Education. R&D for Higher Education.
Approaches to analyze the reform of higher education in Sweden, and particularly the organization of studies in higher education, are considered. Three starting points are as follows: examining the intentions constituting the background to the present organization of studies, considering continuing developments and attitudes toward problems; and analyzing the educational structure existing when the reform is implemented. Aims of the new organization of studies were that a diversity of forms was to be superseded by uniformity, and that it would also be flexible for new developments. Uniformity was designed to provide greater clarity about the range of educational opportunities to assist prospective students and employers. The organization of studies was also designed to provide clearer documentation for the decision-making bodies. To elucidate the structure of the range of separate courses, a survey will be undertaken of courses at all higher education units in three higher education regions. Additional assessment areas are considered. (SW)
