The Sun (Malaysia) - - EDUCATION FOCUS - BY YEO CHIA HUI

IDP Ed­u­ca­tion, co-owned by 38 Aus­tralian uni­ver­si­ties, now of­fers you an op­por­tu­nity to meet with rep­re­sen­ta­tives from lead­ing Aus­tralian in­sti­tu­tions. From Oct 11 to 18, IDP Ed­u­ca­tion Malaysia will be host­ing the IDP Aus­tralia Ed­u­ca­tion Ex­hi­bi­tion in six ma­jor cities: Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Ipoh, Jo­hor Baru, Kota Kin­a­balu and Kuch­ing.

With over 30 pres­ti­gious in­sti­tu­tions par­tic­i­pat­ing in this ex­hi­bi­tion, it will be a great op­por­tu­nity for stu­dents and their par­ents to meet with IDP Malaysia’s trained Aus­tralia coun­sel­lors and the in­sti­tu­tion rep­re­sen­ta­tives to dis­cuss the best op­tions suited for their higher ed­u­ca­tion.

For over 25 years, IDP Ed­u­ca­tion Malaysia has been of­fer­ing com­pre­hen­sive coun­selling ser­vices for stu­dents look­ing to study in Aus­tralia. 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.

Study­ing over­seas has 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 – and these are just the sort of at­tributes em­ploy­ers look for.

Hence, IDP Ed­u­ca­tion Malaysia’s trained and ex­pe­ri­enced coun­sel­lors will be there to as­sist stu­dents through­out their jour­ney to ex­plore ed­u­ca­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties in Aus­tralia.

This goes be­yond a coun­sel­lor merely match­ing your choice of study with suit­able in­sti­tu­tions. In fact, IDP, be­ing at the fore­front of the ed­u­ca­tion in­dus­try, has in­vested in tech­nol­ogy to help Malaysian stu­dents find the best in­sti­tu­tions to study in. With ac­cess to ex­clu­sive in­no­va­tive soft­ware, the stu­dent will ob­tain up-to-date in­for­ma­tion on the in­sti­tu­tion of their choice.

Stu­dents who want to ap­ply on the spot are to bring along the re­quired doc­u­ments and cer­tifi­cates to the ex­hi­bi­tion. This is an op­por­tu­nity not to be missed for stu­dents hop­ing to com­mence their Aus­tralian study as­pi­ra­tions for the Feb 2017 in­take.

At­ten­dance at the ex­hi­bi­tion is free and to en­sure you can see the in­sti­tu­tion of your choice, it is im­por­tant to pre-reg­is­ter on­line at www.idp.com/malaysia
