OSCO serves through various means of communication taking advantage of the latest in telecommunication technologies that can reach out beyond the limitation of time and space.

Our long-distance services have proven satisfactory to our clients especially those who are located outside our city limits. Many of them have departed and commenced their studies overseas without having met with us face-to-face.  

For clients from major Indonesian cities, especially Jakarta, traffic and limited time become their main obstacles to come to our office. Thanks to the telecommunication technologies clients can still enjoy our services at the comfort of their own time and place.  For those who feel more comfortable to do face-to-face sessions we are happy to set an appointment to meet up at a more convenient place and time.

OSCO helped me in processing my PhD candidate application to Murdoch University in Perth. Without OSCO it would be almost impossible to arrange the application, searching for suitable academic supervisor and arranging visa for me as well for my husband and children in between my tight schedules as a lecturer in a public university in Yogyakarta, All were done through long distance arrangements. Amazing!, Thank you and all the best.
