Marivi Manrique’s Testimonial

Marivi Manrique

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.

We got into business straight away. I was given a quick rundown of all the requirements and what needed to be done. Our correspondence was only through email – I did not have a chance to meet the agent, who was based in Sydney, nor have any verbal conversation with her but distance was not a deterrent to the way ISTAC assisted their clients – they were very efficient and they worked very fast To prove how fast, I received a letter of offer from my chosen school a day after I signed my school admission form! After I paid my school fees, I got my Certificate of Enrollment (pre-visa approval) and I was turned over to their agent in Manila who assisted me with my medical requirements and student visa application.

I first set foot in Australia on 13 July 2010 and I have been here for almost 3 years now. I have secured my Diploma in Horticulture and I now have a full time job in the industry. I will forever be grateful to ISTAC for paving the way for me. Choosing ISTAC is one of the best decisions I have made in my life!

ISTAC agents are very professional, They are very quick, reliable and very good people as well. I strongly recommend ISTAC for everyone who wants to study in Australia.
