WHY GEORGIA?

Right between Europe and Asia Georgia has it all and it's hard not to fall in love with Georgia. Already the first humans (outside of Africa) settled here and they must have known why: A diversity of cultures, a highly educated friendly population, and very high standards of security.

Here are the reasons why we thought of Georgia as an ideal country for Team up's base.

1. Over 90% of Georgia's population have at least secondary education. There are more than 50 higher education institutions and over 150 language centers in Georgia.

2. English is the primary foreign language taught and more than 15% of students are also choosing other European languages as their third language option.

3. Tbilisi is the vibrant, beating heart of Georgia and home to more than 75% of its cosmopolitan citizens.
