Abstract [en]

This study is aimed to explore a qualitative study on participants’ experience of the Social Orientation course which is intended to facilitate the refugees that are new to Sweden in their integration, establishment in working and social life. According to UNHCR (2014) integration prepares refugees to adapt to their host societies without giving up their cultural identity. This study focuses on the newcomers’ experience and perception of the social orientation course Since they must participate in this course. Moreover, there has been little empirical research conducted on the participants’ experience in this subject area. the study will focus on two cities, Trollhättan and Falköping because of the availability of participants in these cities. In this regard, a qualitative case will be utilized, and data collection will be made by interviewing the participants. Furthermore, the theory which will be applied in this thesis is the acculturation theory to investigate how immigrants’ understandings and experiences reflect on the components or categories of the acculturation theory, integration, assimilation, and separation. The analysis and discussions presented in this study show that, due to a lack of educated instructors with pedagogical competencies, participants have experienced that they did not benefit anything from the course.
