Study Abroad is a new and exciting division of The Graduate Recruitment Bureau. We are a free and independent service to you, and you will get an application fee waiver from our partner universities if we make the application on your behalf.  

Choosing to study abroad is a big decision and can be quite stressful and complicated. Our aim is to help you to navigate this process and choose the right course and university in Australia and guide you through the process of making applications, deciding which offers to accept and planning your departure. 

We will also offer you advice and counselling about accommodation options, fees, locations and making your visa application.

In short, we will support you throughout the process until you begin your new life as an international student in Australia.

Making an application through us does not commit you in any way to accepting an offer.
