Australia as Top Study Destination in IDP Fair
AUSTRALIA is highlighted once more as among the world’s best education destinations in the next education fair organized by IDP Education Philippines this month.
The Australian Education Exhibition 2013 will be held at the Marco Polo Hotel in Davao on Friday, May 17. It moves to the Dusit Thani Makati the following day, culminating with its Cebu staging at the Radisson Blu Hotel Cebu on Sunday, May 19.
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s Institute of Statistics reports that Australia ranks among the top five destinations for tertiary education among the world’s mobile students. In 2010, it received 17% of the total number of students hosted in the East Asia and Pacific countries, second only to the United States.
From July 2011 to June 2012, there were 2,633 Filipino students who went to Australia to study, making it the Number 1 study destination of Filipinos.
Students prefer to go to Australia for diploma, certificate, training and further education (TAFE) programs because the country offers many benefits, foremost of which are internationally recognized qualifications, part-time work opportunities and higher post-graduation employability potential.
IDP Education Pty. Ltd. is the world authority in Australian education being 50% owned by 38 Australian universities. It is the world’s largest student placement and English language testing services provider.
IDP Philippines opened in 1996 and has since provided free admissions and visa counseling to place thousands of students in colleges and universities in Australia, the US, UK, New Zealand and Canada.
The annual Australian Education Exhibition brings representatives of Australian universities and TAFE colleges to the Philippines for direct consultations and admissions facilitation and is considered the best means for students to consider available education options, providing information on courses and programs, admissions requirements, costs and living arrangements.
