Guests to the School
At IEGS we are focused on helping you get to where you want to be. For the majority of our students this means higher education. We not only prepare you academically, but also help you understand what’s required to study in Sweden or Abroad.
Our students are provided with the opportunity to meet with representatives from international and Swedish universities who give an insight into what studies will be like after life at IEGS, helping students to make the right decision in the next phase of their education.
From time to time, we have different visitors to the school - this includes alumni and invited speakers from various agencies. For those students who do not wish to continue with studies right away, we have the opportunity for them to learn more about options within the working world.
