The University of Gävle first in Scandinavia

The University of Gävle is first in Scandinavia to offer an education in this way through starting a local branch in China and Nader Ahmadi believes that it is a model could spread to other subject areas as well.

The education has been specially design to fit China. Internationally Sweden is believed to hold a very high standard when it comes to nursing educations.
