Australia or India: both exploit foreign students

In Australia, up to 37 foreign students have been packed into a two-storey Brisbane suburban home by a Korean education agent. The rent the students paid was being used to cover the lease for education agents’ upstairs home-office. See Students to march for foreign student rights

When the local council raided, they discovered 27 students, including three Asian girls asleep in a double bed, with beds for a further 10 people. Asian students lived three to a bed

There have been similar incidences in Sydney and Melbourne, where one house had 38 students.

In India, 200 visa agents had their licences suspended by Australian after reports of fraudulent behaviour. The agents are meant to help students gain visas to live, study and work in Australia.

There are also concerns that a lack of student visa checks are taking place to ensure students are living in Australia on valid Australian visas obtained through legal means. 200 Australian student visa agents suspended in India
