The Dream To complete secondary education in Australia and study at a prestigious university
The Difficulties Andy came to Australia in 1996 at the age of 14. His English was at entry level. Studying at a local high school where most students were Australian, he faced the challenge of competing with native English speakers. He was also very homesick.
The Process ACIC understood that as a teenager, Andy not only needed academic and English language assistance, but also emotional support. Over the years, ACIC has supported Andy in all these areas and helped him overcome many challenges. ACIC also designed a special pathway for Andy, which prepared him from secondary school through to his Masters course at university.

The comment from the student
Although my family has relatives in Australia, my parents selected ACIC to plan and arrange my studies. Throughout all my years in Australia, ACIC has been looking after me and frequently offers me valuable advice regardless of what the problem is. They just never turn me down. ACIC helped me to adjust to the Australian lifestyle, guided me through my studies, and most important of all, they designed a great study path for me. I am very happy with my decision to come to Australia, and I highly recommend ACIC to help with your study.
