In order to give Indian students a better opportunity to pursue higher studies at Australian universities, an education fair is being held by the International Development Program (IDP), a leading placement service.

The fair started on August 21 and will continue till September 8.

It has invited 37 Australian universities to provide an opportunity to students to assess their prospects at studying in the southern continent, a statement from the IDP said on Wednesday.

“(In all) 37 Australian institutions are participating in the fair.  It is a FREE platform for all students to gauge their prospects, apply directly to the institution of their choice and get first-hand information on courses, scholarships etc,” said Piyush Kumar, Country Director of IDP India.

“Australian education has always attracted Indian students for its quality and the availability of post-study work opportunities make it even more attractive.  Also 20 out of 39 Australian universities feature in the world’s Top 400 Times Higher Education Rankings,” noted Kumar.

Apart from meeting the representatives of these universities, students can also discuss the likelihood of their securing scholarships and fee waivers with them.  IDP has advised the students to bring along their educational certificates.
