Go Study Australia
Every year, people from all over the world make the choice to study, live and work in Australia. Every student, existing or potential, has different goals:
  • To improve their skills for professional reasons and enhance their career
  • To gain an English language certification/accreditation
  • To gain a diploma/degree/certificate to apply for a work visa
  • To extend their stay in Australia for personal reasons
There are many support services out there to assist students and travellers including Education Agencies who offer personalised counselling (like Go Study), online services, migration agents and even international support departments inside schools.  Most students rely on Education Agents or migration agents to help determine the best way to meet their goals. But how to choose the right expertise? When is it best to approach an experienced educational agency like Go Study Australia or consult with a Migration Agent?  What information can they provide you with? It important to highlight that Go Study works with reputable and trusted migration agents to provide you the best of both worlds – high-quality education advice, and personalised migration advice.
