Having successfully completed 25 years of service in outbound tourism and pioneering India’s first group tour to the US since the outbreak of covid pandemic, Soman’s group, the leading outbound tourism company in Kerala has ventured into study abroad services. Soman’s Global Education, the new company floated by the group and the 25th anniversary celebrations of the group, was inaugurated at a function held at Hotel Le Meridien in Kochi by superstar Manju Warrier on Monday.
Speaking on the occasion, Jeena, Managing Director, Soman’s Global Education, said it is the wide and deep handson experience the company has gathered in organizing outbound tours that has inspired it to venture into study abroad services. “So far, we have serviced more than 3.5 lakh tourists in the outbound sector and the trust we enjoy from this growing community will be a strong base for our new venture,” M K Soman, Managing Director, Soman’s Leisure Tours, added.
In the first phase, Soman’s Global Educaiton, will offer higher education programs in universities across UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, US, Germany and CIS countries including Russia in management, medicine, engineering, law, marketing and humanities among others. Ms Jeena said more than offering quality education programs, Soman’s will also focus on ensuring integrated services to the student community including safe and comfortable stay, food, transportation and recreation facilities. “We know well that people who travel abroad even for a few days care about such things and then, it would be of utmost importance for youngsters who are going to stay abroad for longer,” she said. Mr. Soman also said what makes Soman’s Global Education differ from other such consultancies is that “our services will begin where theirs end. Beyond taking admissions, we will ensure personalized care on students’ healthcare requirements, scholarships, visa assistance, foreign exchange, travel insurance, airport pickups and other such small and big issues faced by Indian students abroad.”
