International Students

"

“In Australia the perceived range of environmental and social impacts of a rapidly growing international student presence has stimulated public attention. The evidence presented at the first symposium indicated that the following elements need to be considered: (1) Certain cultural groups evince a greater likelihood of experiencing racially or culturally discriminatory and demeaning events. (2) The security of South Asian international students was affected by their need to travel late at night and often alone. (3) Economic exploitation of international students by unscrupulous employers was prevalent where students had few financial resources. (4) Economic exploitation of international students by unscrupulous or poorly managed educational service providers had generated widespread cynicism about the regulation of education among current and prospective students.”
