I’ve wanted to study in Australia for a long time but did not know how to go about it, let alone where to begin.I have heard horror stories about the whole procedure. Luckily my aunt who lives in the Australia has stumbled upon a website called ISTAC. ISTAC is based in Australia thus liasing with Australian schools, with my aunt and immigration is seamless and quick.ISTAC also has an affiliation in the Philippines who deals with the Australian embassy for visa and other matters.My agent has made my application quick and hassle free.Thanks ISTAC for your exceptional service. I never would have done it without you. ISTAC is the way to go!!
It was nearly the end of 2009 when I made a decision to study and live in Australia. After extensive research, I chose to study at TAFE North Coast College. I decided to seek the help and guidance of an education agent to make sure that no time and money was wasted. At that time, TAFE only had three authorised agents in the Philippines so I sent an inquiry to all of them. ISTAC was the first to respond – they replied the same day that I sent my query.
2009 was a year when I’ve decided to have a career change. At that time I was doing freelance jobs for an advertising company when my good friend, Ava, stumbled upon an ad on FB inviting people to study in Australia. The seminar was conducted by ISTAC and it was certainly motivational and encouraging. The ISTAC representatives were very accommodating in answering all our questions. After sleepless nights of careful thinking, I’ve finally made up my mind to study in Australia. With the help from ISTAC, I was on my way down under by February 2010.
It was around April 2011 when I first inquired about applying for a student visa in Australia. A representative at TAFE Australia (where I’m currently studying) highly recommended ISTAC. True enough, I was guided through a speedy and hassle-free process. With ISTAC’s guidance, I was able to complete my medical requirements on the 6 May 2011, and before the end of the month, my student visa application had already been submitted to the Australian Embassy. I received my visa on 28 JUNE so I was able to leave for Sydney two weeks later. It was all so smooth and so fast! Thank God I chose ISTAC!
Choosing ISTAC was definitely the right choice! I was guided well from choosing a school to my visa application. They give advices every step of the way without hesitations. What’s great about ISTAC is that they are an onshore agent meaning they have more knowledge as to what school best suits the student. Ms.Alina was very helpful, accommodating and hands-on with every student that goes with ISTAC. More than that, her warm personality led us to have a good relationship. I never felt an agent-customer relationship but rather felt her compassion in helping me succeed in my journey. Being away from home is a struggle but I am very thankful that I have found a family with Tita Alina J.
“Thanks ISTAC family for making dreams into reality”
My sister introduced me to ISTAC some months ago and I haven’t regretted the encounter. In no time ISTAC became my agent and diligently took up the process of securing for me an admission into the University of Newcastle, Callaghan, NSW.
My interactions with the General Manager of ISTAC Ms Alina Tee has been warm, kind and considerate. ISTAC has helped me in pursuing my quest of acquiring qualitative education, that will surely enhance the quality of my life, family and society.
