A+J STUDENT CARE SERVICES begins our service even before the student arrives to commence their study in Australia. All under 18 students are given the utmost assistance in order to make the smooth transition from their home county to a new environment.
We provide a range of services for our students and some to the parents who may accompany their children to Australia.
Once the student has arrived in Australia, they are assigned a consultant who will be contacting them on a weekly basis. The student may also contact their consultant at any time should they feel the need to do so. Our consultants also provide weekly reports online which are accessible to both the parents and the educational institution who wish to monitor the student's progress.

provide parents through their education agent or directly some important information on what they should be expecting in Australia
