I am from Uk, I am doing Master of Professional Accounting in Charles Darwin University, Sydney Campus. Stampford (Australia) help me to get admission and the entire process from application to acceptance of my university. Their service is so fast and adequate. their visa processing team is very organized and informative. I am grateful for their dedicated services and guidance and without their help I couldn’t come to Australia.”


Studying abroad is one of the best experiences of my life and I highly recommend it to all the students out there! Not only will you become more independent but also you will discover what you really want! As for the challenges you might face they will only teach you how to make it happen!! I would like to say a big thank you to Stamford (Australia) for their invaluable assistance and support.”

My name is Elizabeth, I’m from Italy, I’m 24 years old and I’ve been to Sydney from last 2 months, so far. I’m studying General English in Kingsway Institute at the City campus. The service at Stamford (Australia) was awesome. What I loved most about the procedure was how tailored it was to my specific profile. Discussions with my consultant made me more aware of my strengths and helped me articulate them fully on my applications.”
