College Recruitment Tour,
November 24 – December 4, 2020.
Gothenburg – Malmö – Helsingborg – Växjö – Linköping – Uppsala and Stockholm.
Why Sweden and Bluechip events?
- Size: Our events/fairs are small. Maximum number of participating schools is either 7 or 11 depending on which event. This gives a lot of attention to each participating school from visiting students.
- 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 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
- Funding: Swedish students get loans and grants from the Government through the CSN for studying in the USA
During the weeks in Sweden you will meet thousands of students and families interested in studying abroad in the US. We wil be visiting seven of the largest cities in Sweden. In these cities we will be attending a fair, visiting local high schools as well as holding an open house in some these cities.
During the first part of the tour we will participate in the annual Knowledge and Future Fair in Gothenburg. This event is attended by over 12 000 high school seniors each year. Here you will be part of the Bluechip Study USA booth.
The end of the fall semester is a a perfect time to recruit in Sweden as all graduating upper secondary school students begin to plan how and where they will continue their education. Participating in the Bluechip tour will allow you to meet with tens of thousands of prospective students.
Don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity!
