Boarding Tour – Oct 2021

Boarding/Prep School Recruitment Tour,
October 24-30, 2021.
Gothenburg, Stockholm and Malmö.

Why Sweden and Bluechip events?

  • Size: Our events/fairs are small. Maximum number of participating schools is 7. This gives a lot of attention to each participating school from visiting students and families.
  • Focus: Bluechip only works with the US institutions and is the most established and well known company for this in all of Scandinavia
  • Experience: Bluechip have been working with the USA and organizing fairs/events for the past 29 years
  • Student Quality: Students from Sweden are very mature and good students with a very high command of the English language

Meet students and families in the three largest cities in Sweden, Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö.

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 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.

The Bluechip open house in the Cities 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 each city and students there as well as through different sociala media channels.
