The number one study destination for Swedes is the USA so don’t miss out on this opportunity!

- Experience: Bluechip have been working with the USA and organizing 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: Swedish students get loans and grants from the Government through the CSN for studying in the USA
