Boarding Event – October 2024

Gothenburg – Stockholm, Sweden

October 6 -11, 2024

Quick facts and info on the event
In Gothenburg we will participate in the Gymnasiedagarna event where over 25 000 students and families will attend. This is the biggest high school fair in all of Sweden. The students are all looking for what high school alternative they should choose and what study abroad opportunities there are. You will be part of the Bluechip STUDY USA booth. 

We will also be visiting one high school in Stockholm during the week.

Why 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 31 years
  • Student Quality: Students from Sweden are very mature and good students with a very high command of the English language
  • School Quality: At each event we only visit the best/top high schools in each city.

Over the past 31 years Bluechip have been helping Swedish students study abroad, and since 2005 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 private/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.
