The understated “external factors” in the just released Australian India strategy are the deciders… and without post-study-settle pathway “quality education” is not attractive for Indian students… 2035 is too far… we need a 2020 and 2025 strategy!
Open fraud with cooperative sourced financials in Nepal results in unusual growth in Australian student visas. I predict a fall as soon as this loop-hole is plugged.
Australian “first in the world” initiative of listing student outcomes “publicly” for recruiting agents is likely to be misdirected since it has missed differentiating between offshore and onshore recruitment objectives of education agents.
Don’t run them over because they are not “voters”. Asking “tax paying” Permanent Residents and Kiwis to pay full fees is “unfair”. Also “unfair” is the 4 yr residency requirement after PR for citizenship.
Misinterpreting & Misreporting on Immigration changes by media does more harm. Recent Australian and Kiwi Immigration changes are good case-studies where the reporting requires #FactCheck .
Presenting 2016 report card: Indian student’s preferred study destinations. And my projections for 2017.
Demonetisation and the likely “short term” impact on the OVERSEAS EDUCATION demand from India.
With release of the DIBP 2015-16 statistics on student visas, we can foresee a flattening in student numbers over 2016-17. The growth in student numbers is largely due to declined refusal rate for India and Nepal.
AAERI 26/08/16 mega event has posed “tough ethics test” for Education providers and another for ESOS policy makers … Chances are that they will fail !
US Higher Education Act prohibits payment of commission for onshore student recruitment and this is something that Australia must do if it wants to end poaching of students from Universities to lesser colleges onshore.
Australia to introduce an accreditation for Education Agents and why it is critical that it succeeds in chaining the onshore activities of agents. And a call being made to remove/reduce commission payments for onshore recruitment of students.
Why only/mostly “Hyderabad” students tend to get deported from USA? What’s amiss is the recruitment model that has distanced this region from rest of the country.
Precautionary Warning: CERTAIN “FOREIGN DEGREES” CAN BE INJURIOUS TO YOUR CAREER “IN INDIA” !
Bad data used in British Council’s Inside India report: Enrolment and Fresh Student Statistics has been used interchangeably. Should I just say LOL!
Sour Grapes, Hot Potatoes, Go Banana, Apples vs Oranges, Rotten Apple, Carrot & Stick, Crushed Cherry, and Biwi Kiwi: My “Education” notes from NZ visit.
Indian summer (An Article in THE AUSTRALIAN inspired by my blog)
INDIAN enrolments are declining worldwide as key education exporters clamp down on migration and work rules.
