Quick facts and info on the event
Increase your student enrolments from Sweden by participating in this Bluechip – Study USA event in 2023.

You will be part of the Bluechip – Study USA booth as we will be participating in the largest and best fairs in Sweden in Gothenburg and Stockholm. Over six fair days, you will meet over 35 000 high school students. We will also visit two high schools during the week in Sweden. This is a great opportunity to meet with very focused students and families that really wants to study abroad.

In a recent survey by SACO, over 90% of students believe that visiting the fair can influence their choice of education or place of study and over 70% of the students are interested in information about studying abroad.

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

This is our longest and largest event and one of the most popular. Even though it goes over Thanksgiving it always fills up.

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 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 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.
