Australian Universities Continue To Ban Overseas Students
According to the Department of Home Affairs, one out of every four applications is now being deemed fraudulent by Australian universities.
The education officers were advised to ignore students from Haryana, Punjab, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.
The announcement of the ban came before Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Australia on a three-day tour. A massive community event representing the Indian culture was scheduled in Sydney during his visit.
A trend has been noted concerning the management of student applications from India by various reputable educational institutions in Australia. Emails acquired from Edith Cowan University, Torrens University, Victoria University, University of Wollongong, and agents who have affiliations with Southern Cross University confirm the strict scrutiny being practiced while dealing with applications submitted by Indian students.
Edith Cowan University in Perth started practicing comprehensive prohibition on accepting applications from Indian students belonging to Haryana and Punjab in February.
Similarly, Victoria University imposed additional restrictions on student applications coming from eight Indian states, which include Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Uttar Pradesh.
