Oz Govt to Appraise Foreign Students Act: Official

A senior Australian official has said that the government will embark upon an “early review” of an act that is aimed at addressing the problems faced by overseas students in the country. He, however, denied racial tones behind the recent attacks on Indian students.

“Our Government has decided to fast-track review process of the Education Services for Overseas Students Act and it will be completed by this year end,” Colin Walters, First Assistant Secretary, Australian Education Department, told media persons in Chandigarh.

He said that following a rise in assaults on foreign students, the Australian ministers will also convene a round table meeting with representatives of international students on September 15-16 in capital Canberra and seek their feedback on various issues.
