STINT Scholarship for Academic Excellence is a programme for foreign master students who get a scholarship for master studies in Sweden.  50 students have participated since 2005. They come from four countries (South Korea, China, Ghana, Mexico) of which the majority come from China.  The programme evaluated both the students’ perspective and the receiving Swedish universities’ perspective. All students were surveyed and interviews conducted with the Swedish universities and where possible with the students’ home universities.
