History

EF Education AB was established in Sweden in 1965. The company kept on growing and adding subsidiaries. In 2001 the management firm Universal Care SARL was established in Luxembourg as the parent company to EF Education AB and its subsidiaries.

The company division in Sweden looks something like this:

Universal Care SARL: B83591

  • EF Cultural Tours
    • EF Education AB
      • EF Ett Studieår Utomlands, EF Foundation, EF Au Pair, Europeiska Ferieskolan, EF Internationella Språkresor, EF Internationella Språkskolor, EF Learn a Language, EF Corporate Language Training, EF High School Year, Cultural Care, EF Student Travel AB, EF Global Transport AB, Akire Services AB, Ecom Fastighetsaktiebolag and Erika Försäkringsaktiebolag

In addition, the firm Hotel Attachè AB is also part of the Hult empire along with Filmmakers Stockholm AB and Real Add AB (Danderyd).

For Universal Care S.A.R.L there are two addresses listed. One is at Rue Goethe 22, 1637 Luxembourg. This is also the address for Signum International S.A.R.L. Looking up the address on Luxembourgs yellow pages only shows us the name of EF Education First (Sejours Linguistiques Etrangers). EF Education First’s contact info is EF Luxembourg, Phone: 352 26 48 27 48-1, Fax: 352 26 48 27 48-22.

Another address that appears for Universal Care S.A.R.L. is: 27 Avenue Monterey, L-2163 Luxembourg. One of the businesses at that address is the bank BGL BNP Paribas. One of their offers is:

«Ensemble EF Education First et BGL BNP Paribas vous accordent une offre exclusive»

This basically means that in conjunction with EF BGL are offering you a loan with what they consider great interest rates.

In 1966 Europeiska Ferieskolan Aktiebolag created the subsidiary Ferieskolan Anglo-Swedish Institute Aktiebolag. In 1976 it changed its name to EF Institutet för Språkstudier Aktiebolag. Then its name was changed to EF Institute Aktiebolag in 1979. But because the courts in 1985 found that this latest name amounted to theft of another firms name, EF Institute Aktiebolag could no longer be used. At some point the firm was given the name EF Student Travel AB (556104-6854). EF Student Travel is listed as 100% shareholder of EF Cultural Tours AB. However, another site claims that it was merged with another EF firm.

EF Cultural Tours AB (556096-6649) was established in Sweden in 1965. They are direct subsidiaries of Universal Care SARL. EF Education AB is a subsidiary of EF Cultural Tours AB. It was established in Sweden in 1965 as Europeiska Ferieskolan. Most of its details are the same as the one for EF Cultural Tours AB.

EF Education AB has several subsidiaries within various areas of the travel business. Everything from Insurance and management to tours and transportation is included under the umbrella that is EF.

EF Au Pair has become Cultural Care Au Pair. Cultural Care Sweden AB is part of the larger Cultural Care Au Pair group with EF.
