Tuesday, July 23 will see Phnom Penh host 36 Australian colleges and universities to provide advice and guidance to students and parents on study options in Australia. Now in its 10th year, the 2013 Study in Australia Exhibition will be the largest ever held.
The exhibition, organised by IDP Education provides an excellent platform for local students and their parents to meet face-to-face with prestigious universities and education providers from across Australia. Participating institutions represent study options from secondary school through to post graduate study and vocational training.
Joining the Australian institutions at the exhibition will be representatives from the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) from the Australian Embassy in Phnom Penh to answer any questions on student visa application requirements and processing. “Australia offers quality education at all levels” said Ms Quinn Tran, Principal Migration Officer, DIAC at the last year exhibition.
Representatives from IELTS, a globally accepted English proficiency test, will also be on hand to advise on test registration and preparation. The Australian Centre for Education (ACE) will attend to discuss English language study to meet the requirements of Australian education institutions.
This is a unique opportunity for any Cambodian student considering studying abroad. In light of ASEAN Economic Integration 2015, obtaining an international education can be one of the most powerful assets for Cambodians in order to compete in the job market. As such, an ever increasing number of Cambodians are now choosing to include a component of overseas study in their education plans believing this to ensure the competitive edge for their future careers. Australia is proving to be a popular choice as many hundreds of Cambodians have headed “down under” to pursue further qualifications each year.
IDP Education is the world largest placement service provider for international students enrolling in Australian courses with over 80 student offices in more than 30 countries worldwide and has been assisting Cambodian students to study in Australia since 1995. Today, IDP also assists students to study in the USA, New Zealand, UK and Canada. Both the counselling and assistance with study applications provided by IDP to students are free of charge.
The Study in Australia Exhibition will be hosted at the InterContinental Hotel, from 9.30am – 6.00pm on Tuesday, July, 23.
