Experience shared by student who has reached their respective higher education institution in New Zealand after being serviced by IDP India.
Laksita Malhotra, New Zealand
“Ever since I was a child I had two dreams. One of the dream was patisserie, making chocolates and cakes. I experimented in my mother’s kitchen when I was at school. In grammar school, I even earned a good amount of pocket money selling the chocolates I had designed, manufactured and packed. After graduation, I set up my own company in the entrepreneurial hub of Haus Khas, New Delhi . But I was forced to close it down after an year of success as threats made it too dangerous to continue. I was sad but then I remembered my other dream: New Zealand.
New Zealand is one of the most civilised countries in the world with a very open, cosmopolitan culture, an abundant nature and a moderate climate. I wanted to take a course there in management because I realised that I would not want to spend all my life in the kitchen – it is very heavy work with long hours. But how to go about it? I googled everything about immigration and courses and it did not make me happy. How was I going to get through all the administrative hurdles?
Then a friend told me about IDP. First I thought: “Another rip-off” but when I visited their office, conveniently located at Nehru Place, I found a friendly and a highly competent counsellor, Mr Arun who was eager to help. In addition, he knew all about New Zealand and administrative hurdles. And it was free of charge! I could not believe my ears, free of charge in India! We started to work on the procedures, me doing my part, he outlining the route and giving support on every step of the road. Finally , I will fly to my new country and I will be the happiest person in the world, able to realise my two dreams. Without IDP I would not have managed, so: Thank you IDP from the bottom of my heart! “

“First and foremost, I would like to thank IDP, the Client Relation Manager, and my counsellor, who helped me throughout the process. She not only helped me pick out the course that I was interested in but was patient enough to go through my case and made sure that every paper in the file was in place and every document was submitted when required, without any delay.
The whole process was timely done right from the stage of selection of course, applying to universities, admission process, and visa application. There was enough transparency maintained from the counsellor’s side in terms of which option would be feasible for me. And their advice helped me to choose the right thing for me.
I was in Christchurch in time enough to settle in and know the place well enough after my arrival. There are numerous opportunities here related to any field of interest, which helps you grow efficient in your field. I wish IDP all the very best in their future endeavours, and wish that they continue to make this happen for other students as well, since studying abroad a tough process and is a dream to most of us.
I thank IDP for making a this a reality for me. “
Gurpreet Singh Brar, ULincoln University, New Zealand, PG Diploma in Agriculture Science level -8
“To begin with, I would like to thank my counsellors Rama Thakur and Ruchi Sapra(I was lucky to have two counsellors at same time) They have been very cooperative and understanding throughout the process of counselling and application. It was their true efforts that made although a complex process seem so uncomplicated. When I made up my mind about studying abroad, IDP was my first and the only choice for the procedure. Although I was sure about IDP but their way of being transparent throughout firmed up my decision and made me more confident about my choice. Not missing on the point that the whole atmosphere of the IDP office in Chandigarh affects an individual positively. Due to an efficient documentation by my counsellors I have received my visa, now just a regular wait for my passport to be dispatched. In the end, being a little informal a special shoutout to my counsellors for their professional yet friendly behaviour. Thumbs up for IDP. “

"IDP MAKES STUDENTS' WORK EASY:
IDP's 40 years of experience, in placing students worldwide, has become a boon to Indian students. May the case be to a most preferred destination like USA or to an emerging destination like New Zealand, IDP helps the students with the hectic process of gaining admission and a student visa. The well experienced staff at IDP helps the students by presenting a clear pathway to accomplish the student's goal. The staff are well informed with the immigration processes and will prepare a student to succeed. The one thing that separates IDP from others is that they guide the student from a very basic level of suggesting various courses in different countries depending upon the student's aim to achieve his goals. Needless to say the staff being very helpful through out the journey, IDP makes a student's burden very light.
IDP helped me to get into University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand.."
Jaya, Masters in Professional Accounting (MPA) programme with the University of Canterbury, October 2014 Intake.
"I am Jaya, completing Masters in Professional Accounting (MPA) programme with the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. I am proud to be a part of one of the renowned universities in New Zealand and happy to remark that IDP, India has played a significant role in accomplishing my long-term vision of an international education. I was very impressed with the way that IDP handled my candidature and channelled me to the right contacts in the University in order to acquire a diverse insight of the suitable course options. It further helped me throughout the process of obtaining the student visa. IDP not only guided in all my endeavours to begin an international student life, it also extended its support by connecting to the right people in New Zealand to face the initial challenges in a different country.
Initially, I had a wavering mind in choosing the destination for my international study, but IDP directed me in the right path to select the perfect destination that I was craving for because New Zealand is a wonderful place to study and live a relaxed life. Being a student, I personally sensed that it is one of the safest places in the world among the countries that I had travelled and found New Zealanders to be very friendly and supportive towards international students. I enjoy staying in New Zealand as it is a beautiful country which consists of varied opportunities to explore in a new country. I wish to continue my stay in New Zealand even after my studies as it is a great place for an amazing work-life balance. ."
