Sweden's Folk University

    Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate


    This paper provides an historical overview of the Swedish university extension movement. It traces its origins, evolution and current operation and places it in the context of Sweden's overall adult education system. Like Australia, the movement took its inspiration from the early Oxford and Cambridge university extension model, but today operates as a national education association with the extra-mural departments of Sweden's five universities participating as autonomous members. Includes references.
