One-Stop-Solution guide for Indian Student to Study in GCC

The capacity of a nation to appraise, assimilate, and utilize new information of overseas education is closely linked to the amount of money it invests in R&D and the extent to which it develops domestic innovation and competitiveness skills. It is essential for GCC members to recognize education’s significance in defining the future knowledge-based economy and inspiring national innovation before they can improve their capacity. United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, and Bahrain are the 6 members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), which was created in 1981.

According to statistics, the GCC is home to approximately 22% of the world’s population under the age of 24, meaning the whole area will enter its most productive period shortly.
