Abstract:

In 2001 Ho"gskolan Dalarna launched a masters programme in computer science. This programme hasattracted a large number of applications from international students. This has yielded many exciting opportunities, but also given rise to some problems, both practical and academic. A key element of thesuccess in solving some of these problems has been to make the programme highly modular in structure, allowing two intakes per year. This has been the key to developing a peer group support system that ismuch appreciated by the students. Another key element in the modular structure is that studies can be partly done in partner universities member of the INHEE network. INHEE is a International Network forHigher Education in Engineering and most partners are small european universities.
