The UIS Bilingual Pathway is an exciting addition to our School community. It is for students aged 6 - 16.

UIS Bilingual is a unique pathway catering to:

  • Families that have Swedish roots, and a global outlook or aspiration for their child.
  • For local and international families alike, that wish to make Sweden their home, but also keep the door open for an international move.
  • For families wanting to provide a local and global university opportunity for their child at graduation.

UIS Bilingual is unique in how it focusses on Swedish and about Sweden during the compulsary school for students aged 6-16.

This is an exciting opportunity for your child to benefit from a strong academic program in both Swedish and English in an international environment, which offers local connections as well as a global outlook.

We aim to develop true global citizens who recognize the value of their local community. Your child will be open to different cultures, backgrounds and perspectives. They will understand the importance of inclusion and equity.

The maximum number of students in a class varies depending on the age of the student. We aim to have a maximum of 25 children per class. This is in keeping with all Lower School classes. The average number is 20 children.

Swedish, Swedish as a second language, History, Geography and Civics are taught according to the Swedish curriculum for  compulsory school.

Children from both pathways will interact in various ways throughout the day.  Students will play together at recess, attend bilingual assemblies, and attend trips and special events together.

Children in the bilingual pathway are integrated students of our School. Children from both pathways will interact in various ways throughout the day. Activities are in both English and Swedish, and children from both pathways choose from the same selection.
