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 week in Sweden you will meet thousands of students and families interested in studying abroad in the US. We wil be visiting four large cities in Sweden. In these cities we will be attending fairs and visiting local high schools.

In Malmö we will participate in the annual SACO Fair attended by over 6, 000 students. Here you will be part in 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 thousands of prospective students.
