Adult Learning and Global Change, 60 credits
In every part of the world, governments are urging citizens to train and educate themselves in order to stay competitive in the global economy.
Advocates of this argument claim that regional or local trade arrangements are no longer viable in a world where connective technologies can influence resources and purchasing power with a simple mouse click. However, critical discourses on globalisation require the ability to learn in situations that span vast cultural and geographic divides. Moreover, working globally calls for “fluency” in several cultures.

Programme specific requirements
The requirement for admission to the programme is Swedish kandidatexamen or Bachelor’s degree in Adult learning, pedagogy or other relevant subject area for adult learning or a professional degree covering at least three years of study.
Due to the high demands on reading and writing in English, all students should submit with their application a statement in English (letter of intention, 750 words) about why they would like to take this programme. In this letter, the applicants should summarize their bachelor thesis/project. If they have not written a thesis, they should describe other relevant academic experiences. The applicants with relevant professional experience should describe it.
International students who do not have English as their mother tongue must document their proficiency in English by submitting results from a TOEFL test (TOEFL score at least 213/550) or another internationally recognised test.
All supporting documents, including the letter of intent and the specific paper, should be submitted to University Admissions in Sweden.
There are two ways to submit your documents to University Admissions – you can send them in via regular post or you can upload them on Universityadmissions.se. Please note that for some specific countries, Sweden requires applicants to send in certified copies of their academic documents through the regular mail. It is therefore important that you check what is required for your country: Academic qualifications requirements for my country.
Winner e-Learning Excellence Award
Something that started as a "friendship-collaboration" between four universities has become a unique, award-winning learning opportunity. The Adult Learning for Global Change Programme won the 2015 award for e-Learning Excellence. It is this long-standing multi-university collaboration that impressed the jury the most and which they referred to as a ‘Large Scale Global Network Initiative’.
