IDP Education of­fers prospec­tive stu­dents an op­por­tu­nity to meet with rep­re­sen­ta­tives from lead­ing Aus­tralian in­sti­tu­tions.

De­mand in Malaysia for over­seas higher education re­mains strong with the coun­try’s con­sis­tent eco­nomic growth cou­pled with par­ents’ de­sire for their chil­dren to pur­sue their education abroad.

How­ever, the re­cent rise in af­ford­able higher education pro­grammes here in Malaysia has par­ents won­der­ing whether there are op­por­tu­ni­ties to still pro­vide the best re­turn on in­vest­ment when study­ing abroad.

IDP Education Malaysia’s Coun­try Di­rec­tor Ajay Rao ex­plained: “Malaysian par­ents work very hard to en­sure their chil­dren have the op­por­tu­nity to get the very best education.”

He said par­ents know that the in­vest­ment they make in their child’s education will pay div­i­dends for their child’s fu­ture ca­reer op­tions and life­style op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Study­ing over­seas demon­strated that a grad­u­ate has the nec­es­sary cre­ative, in­no­va­tive and in­de­pen­dent think­ing that is im­per­a­tive for the child’s fu­ture de­vel­op­ment and ca­reer path.

It grooms the stu­dent to work hard and be in­de­pen­dent in or­der to be suc­cess­ful – at­tributes em­ploy­ers look for in an em­ployee.

At IDP Education Malaysia, coun­sel­lors are trained to as­sist stu­dents through­out their jour­ney to ex­plore education op­por­tu­ni­ties in Aus­tralia and New Zealand.

This goes be­yond a coun­sel­lor merely match­ing a stu­dent’s choice of study with suit­able in­sti­tu­tions.

IDP has in­vested in tech­nol­ogy to help Malaysian stu­dents find the best in­sti­tu­tions.

With ac­cess to ex­clu­sive in­no­va­tive soft­ware, the stu­dent will ob­tain up to date in­for­ma­tion on the in­sti­tu­tion of their choice.

IDP will be host­ing the IDP Aus­tralia and New Zealand Education Ex­hi­bi­tion from the March 8 to 20 in Jo­hor Baru, Kuala Lumpur ( two days), Pe­nang, Ipoh, Kuch­ing and Kota Kinabalu.
