Abstract [en]

Internationalisation in higher education has led to the emergence of joint educational programmes between universities. In this paper, we document the Sino-Swedish master programme in computer science and software engineering, taught jointly by a Swedish and a Chinese university, from the perspective of the Swedish partner, Uppsala University. We also describe what the programme means to the Chinese students studying in Sweden. For this purpose, we interviewed the Chinese students and asked questions about their experiences of learning and living in Sweden. The students identified the differences in the experiences in Sweden from that of learning and living in China and the challenges that they faced in Sweden. The students also offered recommendations for improving their learning experiences. We discuss the benefits and challenges of joint education programs.
