IDP Education is a recognised brand that is globally respected for providing the gold standard in matching students to the right university.
With nearly 50 years experience of recruiting for Australian education, where one in four students came through IDP, we’re now bringing our experience and skills to universities, private pathway providers and English language schools to the UK.
IDP is the world’s largest placer of international students. 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 choice.
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 convertTo ensure we only send you applications from genuine and high-quality students, we have more than 500 highly-trained counsellors that utilise sector-leading technology.
Our global Client Relationship Management (CRM) system called Oscar includes the programme data of every client, so we can compare institutions against each student’s criteria and means. Making the right match for students and institutions is at the heart of what we do.
Once a student has a shortlist, we counsel them from an extension to Oscar called Knowledge Base. Knowledge Base has full details about your institution and what you have to offer, including your prospectus material, photos and videos. There’s no risk that just because your prospectus isn’t in one of our offices, or you’re not highly investing in a market, that your potential students won’t be counselled accurately, consistently and effectively.
As proof of the quality of our counselling and the effectiveness of our matching process, we know that 75% of IDP students are in the top 30% of their class and that one in ten rate themselves in the top 1%.
Dedicated client relationship manager
Each IDP client has a dedicated client relationship manager from the team in the UK. If you want to discuss how IDP can help meet your international objectives, or indeed any subject about IDP, get in touch with your client relationship manager.
Based in the UK, the Client Relations Team has a wealth of experience gained from both the higher education and private sectors and have first hand experience of working in a complex recruitment environment.
In addition to being available for questions, your client relationship manager will meet with you regularly about our performance and your strategic aims.
With global reach we can also provide global insight. If you have a question about a market contact your client relationship manager who will also liaise with our worldwide offices for on-the ground information.
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 research.
Much of our research is made available to the public and our partners. Our areas of expertise revolve around buyer behaviour research, industry and environmental analysis and statistical reporting of key industry metrics. We produce simple and clear country and subject infographics too.
IDP also hosts the Database of Research on International Education, which is free to use.

Targeted events and exhibitions
IDP provides a series of global events for our clients to meet prospective students. IDP events may be smaller than the types of fairs you have been used to, but they operate on the principle of quality not quantity to ensure you maximise your time. All students are pre-counselled before you meet them and you should therefore only see students with a genuine interest and with the means to study at your institution. No timewasters or prospectus hunters!
Because all students are also input into our CRM system, we will automatically follow up with them on your behalf and provide you with an accurate list of attendees and their contact details (no handwritten email addresses). At some events, you’ll be able to get a list as you leave that day.
Find out more about events on our events and exhibitions page.
IDP also runs a number of conferences including the Australian International Education Conference (AIEC). To find out more about other conferences please click here.
