Established in 1969, as a key contributor in international education and development, IDP Education has played a central role in international education for over 40 years, and is now the world leader in providing international student placement services to educational institutions.
IDP operates a large network of over 80 student offices in 25 countries, offering institutions an efficient and cost-effective way to reach potential students in multiple student source markets.
IDP is uniquely equipped to offer students guidance in course selection and enrolment, with 500 highly trained counsellors who advise students on a one-to-one basis backed by a world-leading information technology platform. This system is used to support a comprehensive student counselling service, helping to match students to the best courses that fit their academic qualifications, their career ambitions, their financial capacity and their study preferences.
IDP also co-owns IELTS, the world’s largest high-stakes English language proficiency test which is available in over 130 countries and recognised by over 6,000 education institutions, professional registration bodies, and employers around the world. IDP co-hosts with the International Education Association of Australia, the AIEC (Australian International Education Conference).
IDP announced its entry into the UK higher education market in December 2010. The move marked an extension of the company’s multi-destination marketing strategy that already saw it offer placement into institutions in Australia, Canada and the United States. IDP UK has a client portfolio of more than 70 universities and private pathway providers.
