IEGS Winter Sports Day and Skiing

By Lydia Barsawme

Before the Winter Sports Break our students participated in winter sports day in various different activities from skiing, to rock climbing, too outdoor walks. It was a great day with the sun shining and a day well spent for both students and staff!

Also before the break third year PE students had a skiing coaching session with Ella from ES3F for their practical development in the course. Ms Hamnström and Mr Mahadeo agreed that it was a well run and organised day for the students who had a lot of fun. Here are some photos from both trips!

IEGS Alumni at KTH

By Lydia Barsawme

I'm Irina Dempsey, an alumnus of IEGS and graduated from the Natural Science program in 2019. After graduating I decided to start studying directly at university; fortunately, I knew I wanted to do something engineer based. So I decided to start studying towards a degree in civil-engineer, specifically in mechanical engineering. I chose to stay in Stockholm as at that point I felt I wasn't ready to leave home, just yet. I also played a high level of football and did not want to leave my team, so I began studying at KTH during the autumn of 2019. 

I am now on my third year, and currently

Open House Updates

By Lydia Barsawme

During week 4 we were finally able to welcome individuals into the building and see our wonderful school and meet with students and staff. It was a controlled event with tickets and specific time bookings and although it was a smaller Open House to what we are used to we were very happy to have curious students visiting. We split what would have been one Open House into four smaller ones, which worked out great and made way for enough space in the building to move around comfortably. 

We do have plans for an Open House in the Spring when the application period opens for application changes
