IDP Education has more than 40 years experience in international education and development.
Below are our top five reasons why students from all over the world choose IDP for counselling annd representatives to overseas universities.
Making the right choice
UK, Australia, US, Canada, New Zealand? There’s no need to limit yourself at IDP. We represent leading universities, colleges and schools in all major English speaking study destinations.
Each year we place about 25,000 international students. Whatever course you’re interested in, and whatever study environment you prefer, we will be able to help you make a shortlist and apply. We have our very own worldwide matching system, so you don’t have to worry that you are only being offered a limited number of institutions. Finding you the right match is at the heart of what we do.
You will be allocated your own personal counsellor who will be your point of contact throughout the application process. Your counsellor will help you and your family make sense of the mass of information, apply to your chosen institutions and offer step-by-step guidance.
One of the most confusing aspects of studying overseas is the visa system. Again, your counsellor will assist you through the visa application process to help ensure that you have all the right documentation.
Meet institutions and attend pre-departure events
IDP run events throughout the year for students to hear from potential universities and colleges and talk one-to-one with staff. Your local IDP office will keep you informed of any events coming up.
IDP also conducts pre-departure sessions where you can receive valuable information to help you adapt to the academic, social and cultural environment in your new study home. The sessions cover all the practical issues of studying in another country like ticketing, medical insurance, mobile connections, foreign exchange and travel insurance.
You can find out exactly how your applications are progressing through the student portal 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can also use the portal to contact your counsellor, upload any required documentation and search our information database. Ask your counsellor for more information about the portal.
If you need to prove your English level, IDP can help with that too. We part own IELTS – an English language test recognised by all the institutions we work with. In fact more than 6,000 institutions worldwide recognise the IELTS test. Over 1.5 million tests were undertaken last year and there are 800 test centres worldwide.
