Senate Inquiry into Welfare of International Students, established by Greens, visits Melbourne and Sydney
The scandal around the shameful treatment of international students in Australia has continued to unfold, with dozens of reports surfacing about rip-offs, scams and exploitation.
The Senate Inquiry Senator Sarah Hanson-Young established in June into the welfare of international students is holding hearings this week in Melbourne and Sydney, and is due to report back in November this year.
Of great concern is the fact that the Federal Government has been aware of problems within the international education sector for some time, but thus far has taken a hands-off approach to Australia’s third-largest export.
International students are guests in our country, and should be hosted scrupulously – as we would expect of young Australians studying abroad.
