Office of the Chancellor of the Swedish Universities, Stockholm.
In an effort to internationalize Swedish universities, a committee was established to examine the approach to achieve this goal in light of the present system of education. Chapter one concerns the Swedish educational system, emphasizing primary and secondary education, the universities and professional schools, education at the universities and professional schools, the organization of the universities and reforms. Chapter two examines the composition, task, and working system of the internationalization committee. Chapter three discusses the need for internationalization, including the labor-market motive. Chapter four encompasses educational objectives. These objectives are attitudes, general knowledge, specific vocational knowledge and skills, general skills, international comparability and competitiveness, and conflicting objectives. Measures for internationalization are included in Chapter five. These measures consist of curricula; language training; comparability; exchange of teachers; students and trainees; and supporting functions. (MJM)
