#Prospects2014: Gabbitas launched new regional office in Dubai
In April, Gabbitas Educational Consultants, part of the Prospects Group, launched its Middle East operations in Dubai at an event hosted by Her Majesty’s Consul General to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Edward Hobart, the British Embassy.
Edward Hobart said: "I'm delighted to see more British education service providers enter the UAE market.”
The Dubai office offers many different services, including a comprehensive, tailored school placement service; a full guardianship service for overseas students at UK boarding schools; help with selection and application to overseas universities and careers advice. This meets the growing demand for personalised education advice in the region.
Gabbitas will also manage four new, British curriculum schools in Dubai, backed by an investment of AED500 million by Mr Mohan Valrani — a prominent Dubai businessman who has been active in education in a private capacity for many years.
