Originally known as IDP Education Australia, IDP was established in the Philippines in 1985 as support for a multilaterally-funded aid program. The Philippine office is the second oldest in the company’s overseas network. At the onset, IDP Philippines was involved in managing a number of projects as well as doctoral fellowship opportunities for some qualified students.
Over time, the focus of IDP Philippines has shifted towards student recruitment and administration of IELTS examinations. This is an indicator that global education is fast becoming the trend among countries including the Philippines.
