We do not charge agent fees for university applications. Applications sent through IDP will not incur any agent fees and this means you’ll get to enjoy our dedicated services to help you pursue your study abroad dreams.

Myth 2: I will get the best value by applying direct to universities

When you apply through IDP, most university application fees will be waived due to our partnership with more than 700 quality universities and institutions across Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland and the United States. Often, direct student applications would require a minimal fee of $100 for admissions processing.
