Choosing a course

Course and university guidance
Interested in studying abroad, but not sure where to study? Our knowledgeable education counsellors can help. Book your free appointment with one of our skilled education counsellors today.

With so many courses and universities to choose from, deciding where and what to study can be a daunting task. IDP Education’s experienced counsellors are experts at understanding your study goals and finding the course that best matches your study goals.

Our team is backed by a sophisticated knowledge matching system that contains all the latest information on our 600 partner universities and institutions.

IDP Education provides personal advice that is tailored to meet your needs. The topics covered in your first consultation may include:
your education and experience, interests, timelines, budgets and career goals
an overview of the education system in the countries you prefer
information and advice on appropriate courses
explanation of the entire application process
an overview of the student visa process
an invitation to attend an upcoming event to meet representatives of our partner universities and institutions
Submitting your university application

Your IDP Education counsellor will submit your application on your behalf.

IDP Education’s 80 offices around the world will supply the institution course application documents and institution program guides.

Our experienced counsellors are here to help you compile your application and certify the supporting documents.

We can then take care of sending your application to your university or institution of choice.
You may be invited to meet education institution representatives who will assess your application and determine your eligibility for the course. You may also have the opportunity to discuss course structures and graduate outcomes in our education seminars.

Response from the institution

You will receive a response from the institution within 4-8 weeks of your application being submitted. When an institution offers you a place in a course, you will receive an offer letter. In some cases, education institution representatives are able to assess your eligibility for the course and print an offer letter during your interview at our office or at one of IDP Education’s many international student events throughout the year.

Acceptance and payment

If there are no conditions on your offer letter that you need to meet, you may accept the offer immediately. Examples of conditions that could be specified include supplying a new IELTS test result, supplying an academic transcript of recently completed study, or supplying certified documents. Offers can be accepted at our IDP Education offices by paying the specified deposit.
If your tuition fee payment is in the form of a bank draft, it should be made payable to the institution and will be couriered to the institution by IDP Education.
