About us


Santa Maria College (SMC) is one of the Membership services of the International Association of Health Care Professionals (IAHCP) Society, part of the Association of Health Care Professionals (AHCP).  It is a not for profit Organisation with charitable intents.  Thus it is an independent, dynamic and innovative provider of general education in all subjects and at all levels, including medical education and training that complements the programmes offered by medical universities, institutions and hospitals internationally since 1953.


The objective of the College is to promote teaching and learning, balanced education, disseminate information, and exchange knowledge, technical and technological expertise between the professionals working in various disciplines in different parts of the World.  At SMC, we believe that sharing knowledge, skills and expertise from the various participants in our programmes with diverse backgrounds will lead to improvements in global health and, ultimately, benefit patient care.


At SMC, learning is about much more than simply imparting knowledge. Therefore we use both traditional and modern teaching methods to suit the individual learning needs of our students and to build teamwork, and a sense of social responsibility. Our modern classrooms are well-equipped, enabling the use of different teaching styles. We believe that it's vital to provide individual support for every student.


Therefore at SMC, we aim to serve as your competent and reliable partner in education and training of professionals. Our staff will always welcome you with friendly, attentive service.



Our philosophy


At SMC, we have the following philosophy:

  • we encourage our students to develop their social skills and give them room for personal development
  • we encourage our students to strive towards meaningful goals and support them as they solve the problems they encounter so that they gain increased levels of autonomy
  • our philosophy is applied to all levels of our teaching plan. Students are encouraged to get involved in designing the way that they are taught.
  • in short, we encourage our students to develop their own personality and to discover their own individual paths towards adulthood.


Our College's main strengths lie in:

  • encouraging independent learning by using a variety of teaching methods
  • creating a supportive environment
  • nurturing constructive relationships with parents
  • academic learning through projects and extracurricular activities
  • holding various events in our College
  • cooperating with neighbouring colleges


Results-orientated Teaching


Santa Maria College we use many teaching approaches, including results-oriented teaching.  This ensures that our students learn for life. Our teaching gives them the knowledge they need to prepare for their future.  This holistic approach to education has proved successful in our College for many years, as confirmed in different evaluations and reviews carried out by our institution.


We use a variety of additional study methods, offering a more inclusive form of teaching, to provide students with a better chance of success. This teaching approach is particularly designed to match the students' different learning types.


Our study groups enable students to apply their learning in a practical way. The teacher's role here is to provide inspiration and encourage the pupils to create their own study groups. Students can therefore determine the content and methodology in their study group.

We are located at:

Various international locations where the Association of Health Care Professionals (AHCP) and International Association of Health Care Professionals (IAHCP) Society members are based.
