Last week the Commission has approved the NESET II short report on Integration of Migrants in the Swedish School Education and Higher Education Systems (AHQ3). During the last years, education in Sweden for newly arrived students has developed significantly in terms of its quality, organisation, allocated resources, content and supporting structures. At the same time, Sweden has received the largest number of refugees in its history in a single year: 163 000 in 2015.

The report presents and discusses the current situation, challenges and opportunities, resulting from the increased numbers of newly arrived students in the Swedish education system. The primary focus is on developments since 2015, and on students in school education (compulsory and upper secondary). The report also touches upon students in higher education and the recognition and validation of skills and foreign qualifications of migrants. The report draws on several previous Swedish and international studies, academic research, various policy documents produced by the Swedish government and the Swedish National Agency for Education (Skolverket), other reports from governmental and nongovernmental organisations. The report was prepared by Prof Nihad Bunar (Stockholm University).
