IDP Education Australia
As Australias leading international education and development organisation, IDP is recognised globally as a first-choice partner in education and development. In those countries where IDP has offices, one in every five students who choose to come to Australia utilises the services of IDP. Wherever in the world Australia is the first choice destination for an international educational experience, IDP is the first choice for students who are seeking advice and assistance.
IDPs counsellors guide students, as well as their family and friends, through the entire process of studying in Australia. IDP helps with everything from selecting a course and institution to ensuring students arrive safely in Australia at their chosen destination. Many of IDPs counsellors have studied in Australia, or visited institutions, and can give practical advice about studies and life `down under.
