DreamStudies is owned and run by Johan Asplund based in Stockholm, Sweden. I have been in this business since 2002 as co-founder and later on Managing Director of the agency Blueberry World Wide. After many years I decided that it was time to go my own way so I started DreamStudies in August 2016.
To study abroad has always been a strong passion for me. I started out with a High School year in the US in 1992. Six years later I did a university semester in London and later on I have taken short language courses in Germany, Spain and Japan. Right now I am trying to learn Chinese so maybe my next course will be in China.
I have a Master's Degree in Education as a High School teacher in English, History and Computer Science. I started my professional career working with E-learning for languages and I also had my own web consultancy as a side business for many years. In 2002 I co-founded the Swedish agency Blueberry World Wide where I worked a lot with students, product development, marketing and web before I became Managing Director 2012-2016. I have visited and made agreements with many schools around the world focusing on East Asia, Europe and the US. I am an ICEF-trained agent counsellor and I am an experienced guest speaker on topics related to the Scandinavian study abroad market and web optimization for schools and agencies.
I really enjoy this industry where we help young people to realize their dreams and at the same time get to meet a lot of interesting people from all over the world. So when it was time to move on I decided to start DreamStudies where I will combine my knowledge of this industry with some new ideas focusing more on the web and modern technology. More than 50% of the Swedish students arrange their studies on their own without the help of an agency or their own university. I will work online to help these students with free information about studying abroad at the same time as I will help schools and other service providers to find and recruit Swedish and international students.
I strongly believe in win-win relationships where all parties involved feel happy with what they get, not least the students. Read more about what we can do for you and what we are looking for. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions and you are also welcome to add me on LinkedIn.
