This study is a qualitative study based on a constructivist approach. Meanwhile, it draws on an ethnographic approach combined a working memory based on memories in various events that took place three years in a former student in the program for sociology and social development. Mainly qualitative interviews are essential for the empirical material analyzed. The study is based on interviews of five college students with an ethnic origin other than swedish at Halmstad University, four women and one man. The aim is to look at how college students with an ethnic origin other than swedish relate to the representations of ethnicity. The investigation has generated a new concept, positioning, in order to understand how representations of ethnicity are expressed. The results show, inter alia, that the concept of ethnicity is perceived as negative by respondents due to other students, with the swedish ethnic origin, as well as teachers' beliefs about it. A "we" and "they" feeling arise, and this is a result of these beliefs, which in turn leads how differences are positioned. It also highlights that respondents consciously positioning themselves which can be interpreted as one of several reasons why differentiated ethnic groups occur. The theorists used in the study include Howard, S Becker and Thomas Hylland Eriksen. In order to further illustrate certain aspects that emerged, are part of Frantz Fanon and Paulina de los Reyes theories used to create a sort of theoretical model that treats the phenomenon.
