A couple of days ago, ETS announced a new customer support centre to provide assistance to students preparing to take the TOEFL test in Australia.
ETS has provided this support centre after the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) recently announced that all international students who wish to study in Australia will soon be able to use their TOEFL test scores as part of their visa application.

The new centre is accessible by phone toll-free directly from Australia, Monday—Friday from 9 a.m.—5 p.m. In addition, student inquiries can be sent via e-mail to TOEFLSupport4Australia@ets.org.
“The new TOEFL Customer Call Centre is a prime example of the user-friendly tools and free resources that ETS is designing to assist test takers,” said Helen Cook, Associate Director of Client Relations (Australia & New Zealand) at ETS. “The call centre was created in response to student requests for personal and timely advice on test issues. We take student feedback extremely seriously and continue to work closely with test takers in Australia to seek innovative and helpful ways to make the testing process more convenient.”
Students who need to register for the TOEFL test by phone or cancel a registration should still contact the Regional Registration Centre at +60-3-7628-3333.
