Elab Education Laboratory
Elab was established in 2012 in Warsaw, Poland, by two young entrepreneurs who had studied overseas and wanted to help other students enjoy a similar international experience. Elab is still a young and dynamic company, now with offices in Warsaw, Milan, Rome and London, placing students in universities or high schools across the UK, US, Italy, Netherlands, Denmark and Germany.
Currently, the company is run by Tom Ravensdale, the major investor, a Chartered Accountant of British origins, who grew up in Southern Africa, qualified in South Africa and worked in London before moving to Warsaw.
The Milan and Rome office and Italian operations are run by Davide Quinto, an Italian who travelled extensively with his entrepreneurial parents as a young child, studied at Cattolica in Milan and completed his studies in law at University College, London.
The London office is run by Sylvia Mejri, who was born in the UK. Sylvia has a Politics degree from Bristol University and has contributed articles to national and international newspapers and is a published author. She has taught English abroad to government ministers and directors of multinational companies as well as UK prison inmates under governmental rehab programmes.
To date, we have submitted over 10 000 successful student applications to the universities of their choice. We are proud to boast that now almost 1,000 of those students were accepted by top-tier universities, namely: Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, UCL, LSE, CASS, Chicago, Penn State, UCLA, and many of the leading Russell Group universities. These numbers continue to grow year on year.
Annually, Elab runs the largest education event in CEE for students, parents, universities and schools. We are expecting over 4,000 registered visitors at this year’s Elab Education Expo.

Elab for Schools
We also work very closely with the more progressive teachers and schools by way of providing training and presentations on studying abroad. It is a complex subject and extra-curricular, but something students need to be aware of and consider. Our consultants travel from city to city visiting schools, attending educational events, and meeting students. Please contact us for more details. We are happy to help your school and your students to maximise their potential!
Request a speaker for your school
The Elab Education Laboratory is offering your school a one hour visit from a member of our staff. Please give details about the age of your students so we can tailor the talk.
Elab has experienced mentors in over 100 universities in Europe and North America!
