4 Fastest Ways To Help You Study Abroad

If this is the first time you are studying abroad, the process might seem overwhelming but it’s normal to feel that way.

Instead of browsing aimlessly through course brochures or Googling university after university, why not utilise well-established platforms that can give you a good start?

In fact, we’ve put together some of the best tips to help you study abroad.


  1. Check Out IDP’s International Education Expos

There’s no better way to uncover your next adventure than at one of IDP’s international education expos. Not only will you get to speak with university representatives, but you’ll also be exposed to a wide range of courses, besides having all your study abroad questions answered on the spot.

A team of counsellors will also be there to guide you through the university application process and provide further guidance on the most ideal courses for you.

  1. Enrol In A Foundation Programme

Alternatively, you can also choose to enrol in foundation programmes that typically last up to a year to help pave the way to studying abroad.

Many international universities in the UK, Australia and New Zealand provide an intensive foundation programme that can help you prepare for the full curriculum of their course.

While you will have to dedicate extra time and money to pursue this route, the upside is worth it - you get to experience studying abroad, the entry requirements are less strict plus you will gain guaranteed entry into the full course if you complete the foundation programme.

  1. Through An Education Provider Like IDP

One of the better (and fastest) ways to study abroad is through education providers like IDP.

Credible education providers not only have strong partnership networks with a spectrum of universities across the world, but they also can help tailor the study abroad process unique to your goals.

One key advantage education providers have is the extensive experience they have to assist you with - after all, their business is to help students fulfill their education experience!

Their experience and help extend to:

  • Giving course and university advice
  • Helping you prepare and obtain your language requirements (eg. IELTS)
  • Handling your application and advising on your offers
  • Assisting you with your overseas accommodation
  • and more….

A hallmark of a great education provider is the quality of their education counsellors.

Not only should they be approachable and knowledgeable, but awesome counsellors should also have walked the same path as you, they should have been studying abroad too - only then will they intimately know the process and provide quality advice.
