Boarding Tour – Nov 2020

Boarding/Prep School Recruitment Tour,
November 16-22, 2020.
Gothenburg & Stockholm.

Meet over 30 000 students and families in the two larges cities in Sweden, Stockholm and Gothenburg.

Over the past 29 years we have been helping Swedish students study abroad, and since 2005 we have focused solely on sending students to study in the United States through our company Bluechip – Study USA. Bluechip is known for being the leading U.S. specialist in Scandinavia.

We have in the past few years seen a growing interest in Swedish students wanting to go to a good boarding school in the US. We have seen an increase in this as families are looking for better alternatives for their childrens education as the Scandinavian school system has fallen behind in many ways the last decade.

We will be part of the Stockholm High School Fair (Gymnasiemässan) with over 30 000 junior high school graduate students attending (9th graders and their parents). They are all looking for what high school alternative they should choose. You will be part of Bluechip Study USA booth. The tour is limited to only 7 institutions. The tour will fill up quickly so register early!

The Bluechip open house in Gothenburg will be marketed primarily in daily press and weekly magazines that is read by high income parents. It will also be marketed to the elite high schools in Sweden and students there as well as through different social media channels.
