Abstract [en]

The paper summarises an analysis of study patterns among students at university in Sweden. The study is using a database, built on retrievals from national official register data from Statistics Sweden SCB (micro data, individual level of statistics). Students enrolled in seven first-cycle study programs with professional qualifications are included such as Architecture, Medicine, Nursing, Psychology, Law, Social work and Engineering (n=27999). Two academic year cohorts are included 1993/94, 2001/02. The data covers individual student enrolment such as: registries on freestanding courses and programs with professional qualifications, dropouts, pauses and length of pauses in studies, earned HE credits, mobility between different types of universities etc. Other information about age, sex, income, family situation/parenthood, parents’ occupations and educations, ethnic background, grades from upper secondary school, further qualification test during their studies (national university aptitude test) and graduation certificate, have also been used. The theoretical framework is based on Pierre Bourdieu’s sociology and the analysing methods are Geometric data analysis especially Multiple Correspondence Analysis and Euclidian Clustering. In the analysis administrative data has carefully been coded into variable that enables analysis of intersections between class, ethnicity, age and gender in relation to students’ pathways within and from the university system.
