Our objective is to manage the AEC study abroad business with integrity and to provide students with quality study abroad opportunities at Australian universities at affordable prices. We meet our objectives, by offering direct enrollment so that students can undertake a quality academic program at an accredited Australian university at the university's advertised tuition fees. As our university partners in Australia offer an extensive array of services after arrival, we do not duplicate services. Instead we recognize the ability of our Host Universities to deliver in-country service. AEC therefore focuses its attention on providing students all the support necessary to get them to Australia. Of course we are available also in the Host country and contactable for on the ground support when necessary. We will also be available to you when you return home and require your transcript. Indeed we have other opportunities available for returning students.
Whilst we understand that study abroad has evolved into big business in the globalized world, our aim is to provide students quality Australian university programs at direct enrollment prices backed by good service. We realize our work influences the direction that students take in their lives so we do all we can to provide students with the best possible options to follow their individual goals. That is why we offer individualized service and we place emphasis on professional standards and ethics.
Our aim is to make the My Study Australia website as comprehensive as possible so that it can truly meet the needs of students.
What we do and why we do it?
By placing an emphasis on affordability, the AEC believes it addresses the issue of equity and access so that students from all socio economic backgrounds can afford to study abroad. Our policies also ensure that outlays from financial aid and parents are kept to a minimum so that even more students can afford to study abroad. Clearly the advantages of undertaking a study abroad program through the AEC cannot be understated.
Students from over 400 US universities have participated in the AEC Study Abroad Program. We support a number of organizations through memberships or donations - example NAFSA: Association of International Educators, whose work as an umbrella organization for the international education industry is well recognized.
