As a pioneer in international education, we are truly global in scale and experience. We have 50 years of experience, presence in over 30 countries and place students in all the five main English speaking study destinations - US, UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
IDP Education is a recognised brand that is globally respected for providing the gold standard in matching students to the right university.
IDP is the world’s largest international student placement company. It’s true, we’re big, but with more than 100 student-facing offices in over 30 countries, we’re also local. Students and parents know the IDP name and know that we have helped many like them make the right choices.
Likewise, governments, sponsoring bodies and other authorities know who we are, know how we work and trust us to provide objective advice. Our clients benefit from our network and our reputation.
IDP Education is a member of the American International Recruitment Council (AIRC). AIRC is a non-profit membership association of accredited U.S. post-secondary institutions and student recruitment agencies, which work together to establish quality standards for international student placement within the U.S.
Quality applications that convert
To ensure we only send you applications from genuine and high-quality students, we have more than 700 highly-trained counsellors that utilise sector-leading technology.
Our cutting- edge Client Relationship Management (CRM) technology supports our highly trained counsellors to help them compare institutions’ courses and find the right match.
Dedicated client relations team
Each IDP destination country has a dedicated Client Relations Team (CRT) to help you get the most from your relationship with IDP. Each IDP CRT reports directly in to a Global Leadership Team member and maintains extensive relationships throughout the IDP student placement network, helping you to navigate and build the best contacts within the business.
The Client Relations Teams can discuss ways that IDP can help you meet your international student recruitment objectives, review performance, provide insights and market intelligence, and keep you informed of IDP’s strategic direction and priorities.
IDP Education has spent nearly 50 years monitoring and evaluating developments in the international education community, and we have established ourselves as a leader in international education research.
Much of our research is delivered publicly at international conferences and may be made available to our partners. Our areas of expertise revolve around buyer behaviour research, industry and environmental analysis and statistical reporting of key industry metrics.
Targeted events and exhibitions
IDP delivers a range of events throughout our student placement network where our clients can meet prospective students and their parents. IDP events vary in size and structure, from small, dedicated interview sessions to large-scale multi-destination student exhibitions aimed at branding, lead-generation, and offer-conversion (or a combination of all three).
Where possible, students are pre-counselled before events so you should only see students with a genuine interest and with the means to study at your institution.
As part of our digital transformation strategy, IDP events incorporate digital tools to improve the experience for students and clients alike; pre-, during, and post-event. We understand that participating in student recruitment events requires an investment of time and resources, so we work with you to get the most out of your event experience and maximise the return on your investment.
The tools available to us as part of our digital transformation will significantly enhance our ability to create a world-class event experience and nurture and convert leads generated.
