Services (In Depth)
Education Zone provides a suite of services to its students. Our counselors will match the student to a career, find the best fit university, college or a school, recognize the importance of improving his or her language as well as ensuring the entry level to the university is appropriate. Thus a student can be directly admitted to a university or placed in a pathway program.
The students require some preparation prior to being admitted to a university, for example the student may need some volunteering experience, writing a personal statement or a cv and some work experience, we at Education Zone help our students to ensure a complete portfolio prior to placement at universities of their choice.
In order to simplify the admission process, Education Zone has tied up with a host of universities, schools, colleges and institutes of technology, each with a qualities that not every student will master, so we cannot place all students in the same place, an appropriate matching criterion is adhered to ensure success.
Once the student is admitted we embark on the logistics of getting him or her there. This is carried out by following the appropriate steps for the country the student is going to, booking tickets, accommodation, insurance and airport pick up. We also provide mentors and guardians if need be as some students are under age and their parents are wary of sending them on their own.
- Psychometric Test
Psychometric tests are multiple-choice questionnaires designed by expert psychologists to analyze different aspects of your mind.
Students at times make incorrect choices when it comes to higher education and career development. Such students are either forced to dropout and switch to another degree, or they stay on a career path, which leaves them unhappy and frustrated. In either case they not only waste precious time and money but also jeopardies their futures. Psychometric tests offer the opportunity to look inside your mind and understand your true motivations and capabilities.
Psychometric tests analyze three things: your interests, your personality, and your abilities. They unlock your natural potential by matching strengths in these three areas to specific jobs, careers and higher education. For example, are you naturally inclined towards a career that requires creativity, or are you better suited to a career in business management? Are you more likely to be happy and successful as an engineer or as a teacher? Psychometric tests highlight which values are important to you, which things motivate you, and which skills come naturally to you.
Most psychometric tests can be completed in less than an hour! The questions don’t test general knowledge or language proficiency. They just analyze you as a person and identify your strengths. Remember, you can’t fail a psychometric test. Just be yourself, that’s all it takes!

Our counselors are trained and tested in the visa process so even though no one can guarantee the visa but at least we ensure that the process is followed completely.
Finding a suitable accommodation, whether its homestay, dormitory, student flats or housing is not as easy as it sounds, as we need to ensure that the family is tried and tested, the dormitory has all the amenities that the students need and the flats are close to the university. We also need to ensure that the students are segregated in different floors or different sections of the dorms. Also some dorms do not have en suite bathrooms which provides a problem for our Muslim students, hence our service. We have partnership with many good accommodation providers and we have seen most of them ourselves.

Themed exhibitions, country specific events, and course specific events are all tried and trusted by our partners. We also provide events for countries that no international students had gone to before and introduce courses that are not on the agenda of our students. For example, we want to bring all the Turkish universities to the Gulf region, introduce all UAE universities to the world, bring film schools to the region to attract students and so on.
Information sessions, quiz nights and career advise are the best way to find interested students who would like to travel abroad. We started this in Bahrain and Oman and would like to take this to the rest of the gulf region.

The world is a small place, made up from people, and objects, and no matter how we all want to differentiate ourselves there are items of resemblance and items of differences. Thus research is an important factor in the life of citizens of the world. Many universities around the world are in fact competing with each other by producing publishable research and having reputable scholars from around the globe working in collaborative research. Some universities even buy some scholars to beat the ranking rules. Our contacts in various universities around the world, allow us to facilitate research collaboration on various levels:
- University-to-university collaboration
- University- researcher collaborations
- Government/corporate- university collaboration
- Researcher-to researcher collaborations
We can satisfy research needs and also help in research evaluations by having in house researchers and statisticians.
