44 students started in the course Social Work in Europe - Commonalities and Differences autumn 2009 and 86% (38 students) finished the course in the middle of December. The number of students applying for the course have decreased since we first started the course in 2005 (99 students), but the success rate has increased a lot. The statistic show that in

2005: 61% finished the course, 2006: 48,7% finished, 2007: 58% finished, 2008: 64% finished and now in 2009: 86% finished the course.

The main reason for the success rate is that most of the students during the last year had the course integrated in the BA programme and the ECTS credits where integrated in their ordinary programme.

This is a result of curriculum development among all the partners in the VIRCLASS Consortium.
