In June 2010 the Swedish government decided to introduce tuition fees for ‘international’ students, i.e. students from outside of EU/EEA countries. This ‘educational turn’ affects all universities in Sweden, both financially and quality wise. For example will the Master programme at Konstfack cost 265 000 Swedish Crowns. Overall in Sweden has the number of application dropped with 73% (according to VHS.se).
A.S.A.P resulted in a series of projects incl. lectures, discussion groups, articles, detention talks, demonstration and proposals.
