Quick facts and info on the event
Increase your student enrolments from Sweden by participating in this Bluechip Study USA event in 2024.

You will be part of the Bluechip Study USA booth as we will be participating in the largest and best fairs in northern Sweden called NOLIA Careers. The NOLIA Career Fairs covers almost half of Sweden and reaches a large area of students, attracting over 9.000 students in two cities. 

The tour will begin in Luleå, then move on to Skellefteå, Umeå and Örnsköldsvik.

In Örnsköldsvik and Skellefteå we will visit High Schools.

This is one of our more popular events to attend and 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.

For the students up north this is the only time and chance they get to meet universities from Sweden and abroad. Participating in the Bluechip tour will allow you to meet with thousands of prospective students. The number one study destination for Swedes is the USA so don’t miss out on this opportunity! 

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.
