Elab – your bridge to global education

Tom Ravensdale

Probably the biggest education consulting team in Europe. Over a decade of success!

Elab was established in 2012 and has evolved into a dynamic and expanding company, now boasting offices in Warsaw, Milan, Rome and London. Our core mission remains guiding students to prestigious educational institutions and schools across the globe, with a particular focus on popular destinations such as the Netherlands, United Kingdom, United States, Italy, Ireland, Denmark, Spain and Germany.

Elab takes pride in its track record of facilitating thousands of successful student applications to universities worldwide. Notably, over 1,300 of our students have gained admission to leading global institutions such as Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, UCL, LSE, CASS, Chicago, Penn State and UCLA, among others. However, our commitment to fostering educational opportunities abroad extends beyond top-tier universities, as we assist all students pursuing an English-taught university or school education across all academic ranks.
