Sarem Education has been a blessing in making my abroad education dream come true. I was finding it very difficult to secure an admission into a Masters program in Computing and when I approached many other consultancies in Bengaluru, none offered me Ireland as a viable choice and no one gave me a Masters in Computing as an option in any country because I did not have a completed Bachelors. I was referred to Prem by an old friend. It was Prem and Sara (the directors) who made me believe that it is possible to get an admission into a Masters in Computing. Their team was really helpful in making me understand the process and guiding me through the admission procedures. These people demonstrated godly amount of patience when it came to helping me with my Statement of Purpose and preparing my financial sponsorship documents. I was guided by Bama. She was super smart and patient with all my doubts during the application process.Just like any great company Sarem Education has been efficient, knowledgeable and extremely honest in their service of making my abroad education dream a reality. What differentiates them is their ability to consider a challenging profile like mine and offer genuine hope with utmost care and patience. I hope to thank this small ,super talented and kind team in person someday.I think anyone who is interested to study abroad must definitely approach Sarem Education because they simply don't give up. They are the best I know.P.S Mr.Prem played the role of RAJNIKANT in my seemingly impossible story of getting an admission into a Masters of Computing because he made this impossible dream come true hehe
