15,000 Fewer Places in Komvux

The number of places available at Komvux – Sweden’s governmentally subsidised adult education scheme, has decreased by almost 15,000 compared to last year.

This comes at the same time as the Swedish government cut back funding from 283 to 189 million US Dollars.

The government justified the cut backs saying fewer places were needed due to the recent economic boom.

The total places now available are approximately 800,000 across the country.
