Student Life

Travel

Within certain courses at IEGS, students will have the opportunity to travel abroad as part of the learning process. We have had trips to Italy, France, Berlin and various other countries within Europe. We also have had students take part in a summer program with Operation Wallacea where students who participate in this program have travelled to locations such as Indonesia to be part of a research team in conversation management. We also have many local trips that are taken during the school year to museums, religious houses, operas/shows and various other places within the Stockholm region.

A student blog post from EYP in Austria 2019

The chairperson announces the final vote and proceeds to wrap up the debates for the day. People get up, speaking quietly about what just happened on their way out. I am still sitting, in shock. I look around and find that everyone in my committee is doing the same. We slowly get up and the tears we were fighting back are now coming. We sob like children all the way to the next venue. Although we are inconsolable we wipe our tears away to keep up appearances during dinner.

2018 Stockholm Schools Debating Championships in Lund

The IEGS Debate Society participated in the 2018 Stockholm Schools Debating Championships in Lund on November 17th, 18th, and 19th. After taking Best Novice Team two years in a row in 2016 and 2017, they set their sights on further improving their skills and performance. The school sent one very hardworking team of five students: Andreas Backman, captain, Daniela Tupan, co-captain, Akshat Deshpande, Dylan Bradford, and a brand new competitor this year, Didrik Bratt.

EYP

We spent a week with European youth just like us, debating important issues that affect the EU and us everyday. Over the course of a week, we learned how to draft legislation, reach consensus on difficult issues, how to debate, how to speak in public and how to understand the other side of an argument despite feeling very strongly for your side.

IEGS is a school that pushes you through your studies. The teachers strive to push the students’ limits. I enjoy the knowledge you get by studying cases and laws because it makes you think differently about society.
