How can I learn about studying abroad?

Sreng Mao, ACE/IDP

Studying abroad at a university in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK or the US is a dream for many. The academic and long-term career opportunities, the life-changing social experiences, travel and independence all make studying abroad an exciting and rewarding prospect.

Piseth Cheap, chief counsellor at IDP Education says: “You can visit our Study Abroad Resource Centre where my team and I will be able to help you with any information you need and guide you in making your study abroad dreams come true. Don’t worry if the application process seems overwhelming because you’ll receive support from the first step until you arrive at your chosen destinations. As you explore educational opportunities abroad, you’ll be provided accurate advice and support so you can make the best decision.”

“First, you’ll receive counselling based on your academic background, work experience, course entry requirements, extra-curricular interests and budget. We check your eligibility for a student visa and any additional entry requirements for preferred courses. If an IELTS test is mandatory, you can take the test at IDP before submitting your application.”

“You’ll also be helped to compile application documents and complete application forms and assisted with writing other documents which contribute to successful applications. The progress of your application is monitored by the IDP team from submission to acceptance.”

“After receiving offer letters, you’ll be advised on which to accept and how to submit documentation the institution needs. You may have to provide evidence of accommodation arrangements for your study period so we provide guidance on on-campus or off-campus accommodation.”

“You may also need to pay a deposit towards the tuition fee to secure acceptance at your chosen institution and we help process this for you. Our team will check your financial documents, help with your visa application and make an appointment for you at the visa application centre. While your visa is being confirmed, you’ll be guided on the requirements of any medical reports and get assistance with travel arrangements.”

“The last step before you leave Cambodia will be attending pre-departure briefings where you’ll be offered guidance on issues such as travel to and arrival at the destination, settling in and studying.”

IDP Education is the world largest provider of student placement services to international students going to study abroad. In Cambodia, IDP is located in the same building as the Australian Centre for Education assisting Cambodian students going to study in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the UK and the US.
