IDP Education has more than 45 years experience in international education and development.
Here are the top five reasons why students from all over the world choose IDP for counselling and representation to overseas universities.
Making the Right Choice
Canada, Australia, US, UK, New Zealand? There’s no need to limit yourself. IDP represents leading universities, colleges and schools in all major English speaking study destinations.
Working with you to find your best educational match is at the heart of what we do.
Each year, IDP places 25,000 international students at educational institutions around the world. Whatever course you’re interested in, and whatever study environment you prefer, our trained counsellors will guide you towards institutional options that best match your requirements.
At IDP, you are assigned to your own personal counsellor who will remain your main point of contact throughout the application process. Your IDP counsellor will help you and your family through this important journey into your future.
One of the most confusing aspects of studying overseas is the visa system. Again, your counsellor will assist you through the visa application process to help ensure that you have all the right documentation.
Meet Institutions and Attend Pre-Departure Events
IDP runs events throughout the year, giving students an opportunity to meet with representatives from a wide selection of universities and colleges. Your local IDP office will keep you informed of any events coming up.
IDP also conducts pre-departure sessions designed for our students to receive valuable information about the academic, social and cultural environment that awaits them in their new study home. The sessions cover all the practical issues of studying in another country like ticketing, medical insurance, mobile connections, foreign exchange and travel insurance.
You can access updates on your applications via the IDP student portal 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The portal includes features that will allow you to contact your counsellor, upload any required documentation and search our information database.
Ask your counsellor for more information about the portal.
Improve Your English Language Skills
For those looking to prove their English proficiency level, IDP can help with that too. We are the co-owners of IELTS– an English language test that is recognized by all the colleges and universities that we work with. In fact, more than 10,000 institutions worldwide recognize the IELTS test, and close to 3 million tests were undertaken at 900 test centres worldwide last year.
