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
