Other European International Colleges
European International College Dubai
CBS European International College Hungary (CEIS)
- Appears to be unrelated to EIC in the UAE. CEIS offers ESL or EFL programs, university and college preparatory courses in Szeged, Hungary. Website www.studyuniversity.info.
European International College UK (EIC)
- European International College London, UK, address given as 58 Bell St, London NW1 6SP but there doesn't seem to be much of a college or university at that house. There is a pub called the Brazen Head, and Brazen Backpackers Hostel on the opposite corner?
- Website www.europeanunvcollege.com not available, website domain www.europeancollege.org.uk has course and contact information. Website photos of the college don't look anything like the Bell St location so something seems to be amiss. Spelling mistakes on website, and broken links don't inspire confidence either, and the telephone numbers look wrong if they are for a London UK address. Provided as "Phone : (+1) 514-779-9595, Phone :(+2) 011 1261 6165".
- One of those numbers also belongs to the Canadian European Academy (CEA), which appears to be located in Montreal Canada, not London or anywhere else in Europe.
- Unknown if there is a connection between CEA (or EIC) and the Canada International College (or something) which seems to be the previous version of EIC in the UAE, the Falcon College, reanimated. Or something. There are a lot of somethings that don't really make sense. Good night.
- Presumably (or hopefully?) EIC UK, Falcon College Canada, and Canada European Academy are all unrelated to EIC UAE.
