    Abstract [en]

    Aim: The purpose of this thesis is to observe and analyze students and teachers with different cultural backgrounds at the University of Gävle, to determine if there are cultural clashes between students, as well as students and teachers. A further aspect was to explore the teachers leadership styles.

    Method: We have chosen to perform a qualitative case study, where the empirical material is based on nine interviews with teachers and students at the University of Gävle, and two observations. Secondary data, such as literature and articles have been collected and reviewed within the subject areas in order to gather the facts needed for the theoretical references.

    Result and conclusion: We have come to the conclusion that the university teachers are aware of the cultural differences, but despite the fact they don’t actually aim to solve the problems that arise. Due to the lack of a more authoritative leadership, the students are given the opportunity of taking advantage of the university system. We have further concluded that future students might not choose University of Gävle as their core of education if the board of education does not address the existing issues.

    Suggestion for future research: We think that it would be interesting if this study was concluded at a different university in Sweden in order to see what the results would be there. Furthermore, we believe that analyzing one of the problem areas in more depth would be a more efficient and interesting approach.

    Contribution of the thesis: Our goal with this study has been to highlight the cultural differences at a multicultural university and how the arising problems are solved. Our main target are the university students as well as the teachers that come across cultural differences on a daily bases.

    Keywords: Culture, cultural differences, cultural clashes, leadership, leadership styles, University of Gävle.
