Why UIS Bilingual Pathway

Your child will learn in Swedish and English every day, both in class — with lessons always being taught in one language or the other — and through their participation in after school activities. By taking part in various events for all students and daily interaction with children in the international pathway, your child will be a fully integrated member of our School community. 

The UIS Bilingual pathway meets the objectives and requirements of the Swedish  national curriculum for the school subjects Swedish, Swedish as a second language, History,Geography and Civics .In addition, your child will benefit from our high quality Cambridge curriculum, alongside the expectations of the Swedish national curriculum. This will provide a rich and balanced academic experience for your child which is fully integrated in the life of our vibrant International School.

We focus on developing the whole child - this means that alongside knowledge and skills we also focus on the development of character and the UIS Character Standards are an integral part of both our bilingual and international pathway at UIS.
