In this chapter, we ask the questions: how does a discourse on individualisation take shape within MAE and FHS in Sweden and how does it operate and with what effects, in terms of shaping student (citizen) subjectivity? In order to answer such questions, we draw on interviews with students and teachers in MAE as well as interviews with teachers and students in FHS who engaged in either the basic course or the programme in youth recreational work. These two courses/programmes are those most similar to MAE. The interview transcripts were analysed, drawing on a discursive analysis with a focus on identifying regularities of descriptions. Our analysis illustrate how MAE becomes an instrumental space for shaping an individualised student subjectivity is shaped, while FHS, is shaped as a more collective space for learning in line with the prevailing self-image mobilised within folkbildning (popular education). However, both spaces students are, through teacher interviews, shaped as egoistic and immature and non-responsible, and a subjectivity in need of modification emerges.
