Sub-standard education for high fees and then getting beaten up by the people whose education you are paying for…after all of that why would you stay??:
Some universities and vocational colleges are already experiencing the impact of declining numbers of Indian students following a spate of widely reported attacks on them in the major cities. That bad news has been followed by further reports of shonky vocational colleges ripping off students and offering illegal access to permanent residency visas for high fees.
In Melbourne and Sydney, two vocational colleges have been shut down after audits found they were operating with inadequate facilities and unqualified teachers. Hundreds of mostly Indian students found themselves part-way through courses that could not be completed at the colleges although they are expected to be relocated to other institutions.
Two universities in Melbourne have reported signs of a drop in demand from Indian students while the nation’s biggest recruitment agency, IDP Education Australia, has told of an 80% drop in appointments by students at its 14 offices in India.
