IDP Live: matching the right students to the right institutions

Our newly launched student-centred app, IDP Live, matches prospective students to suitable universities and courses around the world at the click of a button. This ground breaking service fast-tracks students through to receiving an in-principle offer, before they are required to submit their applications, thereby ensuring that students can find the right courses and institutions faster and more easily. The app is populated with relevant content provided by institutions to ensure that students have all the information they need to make the right education choices.

Users of the app are prompted to share their study goals and current qualifications. They are then matched to courses they are eligible to apply for and, if they choose to proceed, they can receive an in-principle offer from their chosen institution within 30 minutes of submission. This transformative real-time approach guides prospective students to only apply to courses for which they meet the entry criteria, thereby greatly reducing the number of applications they make, whilst institutions receive higher quality applications, more quickly. Throughout the journey, students are supported by IDP’s expert education counsellors through face-to-face and virtual interactions.

In turn, institutions can select the students who will thrive at their institution, learn more about student preferences, streamline applications and create real-time student engagement to help with the volume, diversity and quality objectives of international student recruitment.

IDP Live features include:

  • Fast-track service – course search and matching service for students and institutions leading to the student receiving an offer faster

  • Personalised search and course recommendation engine

  • Course favourite shortlist directly connected to and actionable by IDP Counsellors

  • Student 360, connecting counsellors to the most relevant updates about their students

  • Access to IDP’s global team of education experts

  • Course application tracking with real-time updates and personalised notifications

  • More than 1,000 student and institution video answers to prospective student questions
