DESCRIPTIONThe main concern for Boomerang Australia Studies is to provide, not only quality services, but to also make sure of the reputation of our Australian partners.
This is reflected in our selection of the English language providers we represent in Australia.
All our English language providers are accredited by the Australian governmental Board (label NEAS; Infos: http://www.neas.org.au
), members of the quality label English Australia and gather all quality criteria we believe are necessary for successful studies: high standard of teaching, a wide range of programmes, modern facilities and guaranteed satisfaction!
We regularly hold quality surveys among our students and we do not hesitate to cancel our agreements with institutions not meeting our quality criteria any longer.
