Sydney Morning Herald: Tenth school for overseas students collapses

THE reputation of Australia’s $16 billion overseas education industry has been dealt another blow by the sudden collapse of the Global Campus Management Group, which ran four colleges in Sydney and Melbourne with about 3000 students.

The collapse is particularly embarrassing for the Federal Government, which has been working hard to rebuild the industry’s battered image, as hundreds of the the Sydney-based students were placed in the school by the Department of Immigration after their previous school, Global College, went broke last year.
