Why Santamonica Study Abroad is your overseas education consultant?

It’s been a great journey, indeed.


Since 2002  Santamonica Study Abroad is helping students realize their overseas education dreams.  Our relentless pursuit of quality education has taken us places, made us one of the most trusted overseas education consultants in Kerala. We are proud to acknowledge the fact that today we are the authorised representative for over 500 universities consisting of 30 countries. Santa Monica’s staff are regularly trained by the universities to offer guidance to the students properly & professionally.


How we offer our services is our USP and gives us our competitive advantage. Every student/aspirant is considered and treated for the person he/she is, his/her skill sets and ambitions.  So when a student comes to us, our initial step is to analyse the profile of a student , their previous academic records, passion, ambition & their subject of interest. Most of the students will be aware of only about some conventional courses. It is the duty of our career counsellors to provide the students with the required details of various courses offered overseas.


Most of the time a student will be unsure and confused about what program to take or which course to pursue. In such cases, we enlighten them with courses of their interest after studying and analysing their interests and passion. There are many career-oriented unconventional courses offered in the developed countries which our students are not aware of. Course selection is done only after enlightening the students with the career prospects of each and every course.


Once the course selection is done, we encourage the students and their parents to do some research on their own. They are advised to investigate courses, universities and their locations. They are encouraged to look into the teaching modules, research opportunities, campus life and employment prospects before they narrow down to their choice. Candidates can ask friends and family or reach out to the alumni of universities they are interested in for a wider perspective.


Next step is to register the student for the admission process. We forward the application and help them with the admission process. Once the admission procedure is over, we will pass onto their Visa application.  Our visa documentation team helps the student with the necessary documentation.


Next step is to guide and prepare students for visa interviews and guide them in preparing a statement of purpose. We discourage students to go into any fabricated details as a fabricated document will lead to a ban or visa rejection which many are not aware of. If there is a gap in their academic records, we help them to write an effective explanation with all the necessary documents.


 Once the visa is obtained and the student gets an offer letter, then the question of procuring a student education loan emerges. We assist students in procuring a loan. As we have tie-ups with many of the leading banks in India, loan approvals get easy. This service has fetched Santamonica lots of excellent reviews and many students & their parents are grateful for guiding them properly.


Travel is the next important thing to be sorted out. We have a fully equipped travel desk to arrange your travel and accommodation at the destination according to the student’s choice. This may include Airport pick up and assistance. These facilities are arranged by Santamonica and payment should be made there directly. If a student, after joining a college wants a  relocation either from the college or from the province, Santamonica can assist in that case also.


Another attractive service that we offer is our travel agency- a sister concern of Santamonica Study Abroad consultancy. We book tickets for our clients at a very subsidised rate especially for students as we are aware of the additional expenses.  Not only that we assist in the travel plans of parents or family members who want to travel later on to meet their ward/relative, but we also make sure that our client’s travel is smooth and hassle-free.


Team Santamonica owes its success to their unwavering dedication, ethics, professional practices, continuous investment on staff training, use of state of the art technology and above all to its ‘’client first’’ policy”.


Yes. It has been an amazing journey!
