IDP Services & Assistance
IDP counsellors offer you impartial and professional advice on international higher education institution and course options based on your academic qualifications and work experience, keeping in mind your budget, city and other preferences.
Institution application processing
IDP offices have all the relevant institution application forms, brochures and handbooks. Counsellors will help you compile your application and certify the documents supporting it. Your application will be forwarded to the institution and your counsellor will follow up for a response.
You will also be invited to meet education institution representatives who will assess your application and determine your eligibility for the course through our information sessions and exhibitions.
Response from institution
When an institution offers you a place of study, you will receive an offer letter. In some cases, education institution representatives are able to assess your eligibility for the course and print out an offer letter.
Sometimes applying for visas can feel like a difficult process, but our team is here to make sure you have access to all the correct information. There are several steps students to applying for a student visa. The order of these steps and how you complete them vary according to where you are planning to study.
As visa requirements can change quickly, IDP can ensure you have access to official websites and can make sure you have the latest applications forms. To reduce the hassle, we can also help with translating and couriering your documents. The processes and requirements that international students must meet to be eligible for a student visa differ from country-to-country, so it is really important to stay up to date with latest information.
