Sammanfattning

Syftet med denna studie var att belysa faktorer som före detta utbytesstudenter anser har betydelse för att intressera studenter att söka till utbytesstudier.

Fem före detta utbytesstudenter på Karolinska Institutet intervjuades. Resultatet visade att respondenternas tidigare erfarenhet av utlandet, deras omgivning, eget intresse och information om utbytesprogram var betydelsefullt för att välja utbytesstudier. De tyckte att deras perspektiv hade vidgats. Det har varit en helhetsupplevelse med personligt utveckling och internationell erfarenhet. De kände sig tryggare, rikare, de hade blivit duktigare i språk och tyckte att de kunde klara av vad som helst. Även om det skulle finnas något negativt ansåg de att hinder betyder mindre än värdet av utbytesstudierna. Respondenterna antog att orsakerna till de svenska studenternas låga deltagande är bland annat långa ansökningsprocesser, otillräcklig information, svårigheter att tillgodoräkna poäng och avsaknad av intresse. Kan deltagarna i internationella utbytesprogrammen bli fler om informationen om utbytesprogrammen står i utbildningskatalogen samt antalet internationella handläggare ökar?

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to elucidate factors that former students think are important to attract students to apply for exchange studies.  Five former exchange students were interviewed at the Karolinska Institute. Results showed that the informants' previous experiences abroad, their environment, their own interests and information on exchange programs was important to select the exchange studies. They thought that their perspective had broadened. It has been a holistic experience with personal development and international experiences. Their language abilities developed. They felt safer, richer and thought they're capable of doing anything. Informants felt it was more positive although it was difficult to participate in exchange programs. Informants considered that the reasons for the Swedish students' low participation are the long application processes, insufficient information, counting of the credit and lacked interests. Can participants in international exchange programs get to be more, if information on the exchange programs is written in the course catalogs and the number of international administrators increase?
