The present investigation aims at describing and analysing aspects of students’ experiences of PBL within three different academic contexts; computer engineering, psychology and physiotherapy respectively. A sociocultural perspective was outlined as a theoretical point of departure. Altogether 58 students participated in the study. Semi-structured interviews were used as the method of data collection. Data were analysed qualitatively. The results showed differences between how problem-based learning is realised and understood by the students in the three programmes. These differences are discussed in relation to the perspectives of knowledge and learning embedded in the programmes as reflected through the students' experiences.
