Why UIS Bilingual

A child’s early years are the best time to lay the foundation for their future and students in our bilingual pathway will get so much more than just a great education.

Your child will benefit from the full UIS Experience and being part of our special international community where children from 65 nationalities with 40 languages feel at home.

Your child will be an integral member of the entire School community and enjoy a variety of activities with children from other classes and year groups, such as regular assemblies, co-curricular activities and excursions.

Overview

We want all students in the Bilingual pathway to establish strong academic Swedish and English, by building strong foundations for academic literacy in their dominant language first. This gives confidence to our local Swedish families that their home language will be strong, but also confidence to our international families who want Swedish to be much more than just a social language for their child. Students will get more teaching in Swedish and about Sweden preparing them to continue their education in Sweden.

UIS Bilingual students:

  • Access the mandatory teaching resources of the Swedish national curriculum, combined with high quality international resources and pedagogical approaches.
  • Access a wide range of co-curricular activities in both English and Swedish.

UIS Bilingual is a unique pathway catering to:

 1. Student who has attended school abroad for a major part of their education and therefore have a reason to fulfill his/her education in an international school in Sweden.
 
 2. Student who is currently living in Sweden but is planning to leave Sweden for a longer period.
 
 3. Student who speak English daily with one or both parents/caretakers and has sufficient language skills to participate in the education.

Why UIS Bilingual

This is an exciting opportunity for your child to benefit from a strong academic programme 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.
