”High School and Open-House Tour”
Stockholm – Gothenburg – Lund/Malmö
April 14 – 20, 2024
Quick facts and info on the event
Increase your student enrolments from Sweden by participating in this Bluechip Study USA event in 2024.
At our April event we will visit high schools and hold evening Open-Houses. It is a great opportunity and a very popular event as it gives schools an opportunity to recruit students for future intakes but also ”last minute” students for the fall 2023 intake.
Why 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 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 events and fairs for the past 30 years.
- Student Quality: Students from Sweden are very mature and good students with a very high command of the English language.
- Funding: Sweden students get loans and grants from the Government for studying in the USA.
