dc.description.abstract Abstract The purpose of this essay is to extend our knowledge about Educational Science and internationalization in higher education. At the beginning of our studies we were informed that the International Student Council offered the possibility to write an essay about Internationalization on home ground at Malmö University. We found the subject very interesting and started to discuss how we could plan the essay. The point with our work was to investigate and clarify how Internationalization at Home (IaH) is implemented at some of the programmes at Malmö University. We have collected information about how selected groups of students at Malmö University understand internationalization in their education. We have selected student groups from professional programmes primarily aiming for the Swedish job market. We have made the following conclusions from our survey: Most of the students: - are informed about internationalization at Malmö University - think international competence is important for the career -don’t choose to study abroad even if they take it into consideration - don’t know the concept of IaH - wish the information about internationalization should be easier to obtain We looked after and selected literature about IaH and some theoretical literature about social processes. We wanted to provide a better knowledge for the work of the International Office at Malmö University. Finally, we presented the results in an international conference. The results of the essay were that most of students at Malmö University agreed that internationalization of higher education is very important and wanted by students. The students understand that IaH is a great concept in the reforming process of education. en
