Halmstad University recently received the first four payments from foreign students. The students come from Thailand ,Pakistan ,China and Syria. The education programmes they will study are: a Master's Degree in International Marketing, Network Design and Computer Services, Integrated and Intelligent Systems and the Master's programme in integrated and intelligent systems
In April last year, The Swedish Parliament decided that students from third countries, i.e. outside the EU, EEA and Switzerland are required to pay tuition fees for courses at undergraduate and graduate levels. The change applies only to so-called free-mover students, meaning students who are not included in the University's exchange agreements.
“If we reach the number of 40 paying students, then we are very happy," says Brita Lundh, who says that payments must be made by mid-May.
"It basically means half the tuition fees," says Brita Lundh.
Applicants' results have been crucial when deciding who shall received scholarships.
In order to recruit paying students abroad, the University has cooperation with agents in India and China, which conveys information about the University through e.g. fairs, shops and websites.
