LiU leads the way in number of students gaining passes
LiU students are the national leaders in obtaining pass grades, with at least 85 percent passing their courses. This was the outcome when the Swedish National Agency for Higher Education compared the performance rate at 20 Swedish universities.
The survey is based on students who gained at least 60 credits, equivalent to full-time studies, during the academic year 2008/2009. The average for the 20 universities was 79 percent and students at Linköping University were top of the list with 85 percent passing the courses they were registered on.
Students at Chalmers were not far behind with 84 percent of students gaining a pass, followed by KTH and Luleå University with 83 percent.
“Programmes that lead to a professional qualification have the highest performing students. General degree students have slightly lower pass rates and students taking single-subject courses the lowest” said Lena Eriksson, editor of the report at the National Agency for Higher Education.
