The student visas offered by Eton Institute will be valid for up to 12 months on selected learning and development programmes, including Arabic and English language courses, Tesol/Tefl teaching certification and professional development courses such as Business English and Business Skills.

Moaz Khan, Marketing Director at Eton Institute, said, “The UAE provides a very warm and friendly atmosphere to guests and visitors as well as offering a great platform for learning and practising new languages. There are exciting and unusual activities to be pursued in the UAE along with undertaking courses, offering the opportunity to acquire new skills.

“By providing student visas to our international students, we aim to make travelling and studying in the UAE easier and more enjoyable.”

In the UAE, student visas are generally only offered to international students by universities, but the facility has been extended to Eton Institute in recognition of its exceptional record in offering quality products and services to an expanding community of learners, the company said in a statement.

Headquartered in the Dubai Knowledge Village, Eton Institute is a member of Eaquals and is a test centre for Ielts, Toeic, City and Guilds, ÖSD (German) and ECTA (Saudi Arabia) language exams. It also offers preparation courses for a range of other tests.
