After the success of the Manila and Cebu legs of IDP’s Study in Australia and New Zealand Expo 2016, their first series this year, it was Davao’s turn to spread their wings and get ready to take flight. Held at The Pinnacle Hotel Suites on the last day of the Expo, March 15, the event was attended by students who aspire to continue their education abroad.

IDP, the world leader in international student placement services, was glad to be in Davao City as participants were not only as enthusiastic as the crowds in Manila and Cebu, but they were also definitely as driven and passionate about their dream to build a future abroad. Numerous on-the-spot applications were turned in, examinees booked for the IELTS test, and a good turnout of students did not miss the chance to benefit from the free course advising and seminar and all the other activities prepared for them at this year’s Expo.

IDP’s Certified Quality Education Agent Counselors (QEAC) were also at the venue so they can readily assist students with their plans of pursuing a degree overseas, walk them through the process of university and visa application. With IDP being a proud co-owner of IELTS (International English Language Testing System), the world’s most popular high-stakes English language proficiency test, IDP IELTS staffs were also able to help students book their exam.

Having institution representatives from prestigious universities in Australia and New Zealand join the event was also a major factor in helping them with their decision, as it painted a picture of their prospective schools and gave them an idea on the different programs they could get into, that would best suit their interest, career goals, and budget.

Some of the participating universities include the ACG Colleges Group, Cornell Institute of Technology, Massey University, National Tertiary Education Consortium, and University of Auckland, in New Zealand; and from Australia are Academia International, Australian Catholic University, Australian Pacific College, Blue Mountains Hotel School, Canberra Institute of Technology, CQUniversity-Brisbane International Campus, Charles Darwin University, Chisholm Institute, Curtin University, Deakin University, Flinders University, James Cook University, Kaplan Business School Australia, Kent Institute of Business and Technology, La Trobe University, Le Cordon Bleu Australia, Monash University, Queensland University of Technology, RMIT University, The University of New South Wales, The University of Queensland, Torrens University, University of Canberra, University of Newcastle, University of South Australia, University of Southern Queensland, University of Technology Sydney, and Victoria University.

IDP truly provides an unparalleled service that jumpstarts the success of many aspiring individuals whose future begins overseas. It helps students build their dreams, their services not ending in getting them accepted in their city and university of choice, but also helps them prepare for a life in a new country they are about to call home for the next couple of years.
