Our History


We are founded in Taiwan. Starting with offices in Taipei and Taichung, we now have offices in all major cities and metropolitan areas of Taiwan, and we are a market leader.


We organise our first student recruitment exhibition for partners. The event is a huge success and today we run recruitment exhibitions for partners in all our countries (except UK). ‘Study World’ is one of our better-known exhibition brands.


We open our UK office in Oxfordshire. Our UK office assists international students coming to, or already in, the UK.


We establish our first IELTS school, followed by several others. In time, we become an authorised test centre for BC IELTS and Pearson.


Following the devastating Indian Ocean tsunami, we offer support by building a pre-school in south-eastern Sri Lanka.


We form a joint venture partnership with ISC in Vietnam. Today, we have offices in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City and are a market leader.


We open our first office in Lagos, Nigeria. Today, we have seven offices across the country and are a market leader.

Our first office in the Philippines opens, in Makati. We now have the best seven offices across the country and are a market leader.


We launch our first office in Ghana. With offices now in Accra and Kumasi we have become a market leader.


We hold our first career fair for returning students. It becomes an annual event and interest spreads across all our markets and among local employers.


We acquire Mentor International, a leading education agency in Bangkok, Thailand. Mentor International is welcomed into the Intake family.

We open our first office in East Malaysia, in Kota Kinabalu, followed by a second office in Kuching, in 2021.


We embark on a major upgrade of our technology, doubling our IT team and setting out on our journey to provide a tech platform to bring together students, advisors and universities.


COVID-19 pushes us to deliver a record number of events online. One of these, held across all of our markets, is our first and very successful Australia-only focused recruitment event. The first of more to come.

We open our first of 15 planned offices in India. With a flagship office in New Delhi, we open in Pune, Mumbai and Bangalore soon after. Our expansion will form a strategically located network across key regions and cities.


UKEAS changes its name to Intake Education.


We open our first office in Nairobi, Kenya. The largest and most advanced economy in East and Central Africa and offering excellent access and expansion opportunities into the surrounding region.


In November 2022, Intake Education is acquired by IDP Education. Two trusted international education brands coming together, as a clear global leader.

In joining with IDP, we will help grow the international education sector and create a new standard for supporting students in achieving their global goals.

In phased stages through 2023, Intake will integrate with IDP as one, as operate as IDP going forward.
