Indian students hit as two Australian colleges close

Australian Institute of Career Education and Australian International College of Commerce were closed on Monday after it was found that they had inadequate learning materials, deficient kitchen facilities for training hospitality students, and failed to keep proper student records, ‘The Age’ reported.

A total of 129 students, mostly from India and China, studying commercial cookery have been left in limbo. Some were due to finish their courses in less than two weeks.
“Students who are displaced as a result of college closures must, by law, be found alternative colleges or have their course fees refunded,” the report said.
The newspaper said it believed  Australian International College of Commerce also had inadequate staff to teach the students it had enrolled.

The closures bring to 11 the number of colleges that have shut since July, either because of a failure to comply with regulations or because of financial woes. In total, more than 3000 international and domestic students have been affected.
