"Very reliable and efficient. Ms Tan Mei Pei helped me throughout the process and ensured that I had all the documents. Helped me prepare everything and submit my visa in a short amount of time. Would not have been able to do it all by myself in such a timeframe. Highly recommended"

Very grateful for everything & would recommend her services to anyone looking to study in Australia"

"The staff (Ms Tan) of AECC Global who guided me is very helpful and efficient. There is no delay in anything or any inconvenience. Her work was all up to date. AECC Global is a very good choice if you are considering studies abroad."

"It was great working with the education counsellor from AECC. They are very efficient and helpful for any requested information. Their service makes the process much easier and less stressful. AECC is highly recommended! Thank you for the support and guidance."
"Great and efficient service by AECC and special shout out to Mun Yue whom have helped me from Day 1 till the day I got my visa. Answering all my questions even after working hours and helping me with the applications to different unis and solving my accommodation problems. Highly recommended!"

"I applied for multiple universities alone, and only required the help of AECC when applying to Deakin University. Honestly I wish I'd have found them earlier and got their assistance for my other applications. My representative - Mun Yeu, was super helpful and quick to respond. 12/10 would recommend anyone."
