The history of Study World Higher Education Services FZ LLC goes back to 2005 when it was setup in Dubai International Academic City. It was then known as Eikon International Holding Co. FZ LLC. Initially occupying a small office space of around 300 sq ft., the company was formed with the purpose of operating as the Academic Infrastructure Provider for Heriot-Watt University Dubai Campus. From its humble beginnings, the company grew rapidly, a 40,000 sq ft. campus was taken on lease, furnished, and equipped with state-of-the-art facilities like video conferencing, internet-ready classrooms, auditorium, computer laboratories, library, and other administrative and support facilities. A quality touch was added to every aspect of the infrastructure development and soon the campus was ready to welcome its first batch of students in September 2005.
