The commissioned education course "Korta vägen" started last week at Halmstad University. For the fourth year running foreign academics, during 30 intensive weeks, will receive help to portray their previous studies and work experience and at the same time learn about the Swedish labour market.

Lectures at the University are alternated with work placements. The main idea and purpose of the project "korta vägen" is to help the students to find employment in the field they have training and experience in from his/her former homeland.

For the fourth time, Halmstad University's commissioned education course "Korta vägen" got underway the other week. During the course, the 25 participants will combine work experience at Swedish workplaces with education at the University in subjects such as the Swedish language.

All teaching is in Swedish and new for this year is the subject Swedish geography. The subject has been added to the education after consolation with last year's students. Other subjects are, among other things, the Swedish language, project management and information regarding the Swedish social life.

Linnea Gustafsson, Swedish teacher at the University and project leader has promised the students four things at the introduction meeting. They will improve their Swedish language skills as well as developing as people. It will be a demanding time but, it will also be fun.
"We will learn from each other and at the same time create possibilities together", says Linnea.
