Top University Discriminated Against Swedes

Uppsala University

One of the highest seats of learning in Sweden, Uppsala University, has been found guilty of discrimination by the supreme court for reserving places on its law course for people with immigrant backgrounds.

Uppsala was taken to court by two women who were rejected from the course , even though they had better marks than all 30 immigrant applicants.The women had previously won their case at both district and appeal court level.

The supreme court ruled that the university had discriminated against both women. It said that setting quotas is acceptable as long as applicants are treated equally.

The women were awarded 75,000 kronor in compensation with the state paying costs.
