Abstract [en]

The purpose of this master thesis is to examine how people with immigrant backgrounds, who have experienced successful schooling in Sweden, talk about their schooling.

The focus study is how these individuals talk about their schooling and foremost about their experiences from the preparatory class.

The empirical data of the study consists of semi-structured interviews with seven people and the methodological approach for getting answers to the questions are discourse theory and a poststructuralist reading.

The result of this study is that the informants share the same success factors in schooling: beeing met as individuals, with respect and encouraging attitude and as barely a member of the newcomer group.

The informants share the experience that the preparatory class contribute to mental and physical segregation in relation to the rest of the school.

The results also show us how certain arrangements in the schools make it difficult for students to integrate and almost impossible for the newly arrived pupils to make Swedish friends.
