Best Study Abroad Consultants in Manipal

We started the Manipal branch in July 2017, with students coming in from different streams and levels. Our first student was Abdul Mannan Asif, a high school graduate and an excellent football player, who began his undergraduate journey with an engineering degree in Mechatronix at Liverpool University, with a scholarship of 4000 GBP. In the very first batch, we also sent Nitesh Dubey to Michigan State University and Salil Puri to Clemson. Simultaneously, we began coaching for GRE / GMAT and TOEFL / IELTS, with our star faculty traveling from Mumbai to Manipal to coach these amazing young people, guiding them towards achieving high scores that opened doors for them.

Our span covers multiple countries other than just USA and UK, ensuring a smooth process to reach France, Germany, Spain, Italy , Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

Among our students is Delwin Saldhana, who went to PoliMi Italy on a full scholarship, (including Living and meals), for an MS in Energy Engineering-Renewables and Environmental Sustainability. Another noteworthy student is Austin Vas, who was a recipient of the Erasmus Mundus scholarship, though he chose to go to Stuttgart for his master’s in Embedded Technology.

Surviving through the pandemic, we moved our office to a more accessible facility, bringing us closer to the students as well as making it easier for them to reach us.

IMFS now hosts the only Official Testing Center for ETS, for both GRE and TOEFL, right here in Manipal. We are thus a complete one stop solution for all students aspiring for overseas education.
