We are passionate about international education as we appreciate how education can truly transform lives. Our business ethos consistently attracted many university partnerships and also prospective students to our service. This enabled us to expand rapidly in Bangladesh without compromising our quality of service and we opened our first branch in Dhaka, Bangladesh in 2018. We continued to expand with popularity rising among prospective students for the quality of our service which motivated us to open further two branches in two other big metropolis cities of Sylhet and Chittagong. We also opened a regional office in Chennai, India in 2020.
In addition, we expanded on our recruitment regions outside Bangladesh in 2013 and now recruit from South Asia (India, Sri Lanka, Nepal), Sub Saharan Africa (Nigeria, Ghana, Tanzania and Kenya), the Middle East and Northern Africa (UAE, Bahrain, Qatar and Saudi Arabia) and Russia. This has enabled us to place over 2000 international students from diverse backgrounds in over 20 different educational institutions since inception.
