AUSTRALIA: Universities to Get Tough over Foreigner Admissions
# 07, July 2016
The entry of mediocre foreign students into Australia is likely to be restricted with new norms making education institutions responsible for the genuineness of their admissions, which will be reflected in their ratings. However, students opting for top universities will have much easier entry, with no questions asked about financial support by the immigration department.“Institutes will be forced to do tougher screening and mediocre students are likely to be automatically weeded out due to the new norms of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection,” says Nisidhar Borra, director of Storm, a consultancy dealing with foreign education. “If institutes make a mistake, their rating will be at risk and they will be nailed.”

# 07, July 2016
Education authorities are concerned that the fallout of the Brexit vote will lead to a dramatic increase in the number of Irish and other European students in higher education in Ireland.Some 10,905 Irish students currently study in United Kingdom colleges and universities. The head of the Higher Education Authority said many of these students may opt to study at home in future given uncertainty over fees for Irish students in the UK. Tom Boland said that in principle Irish students would be treated as international students – who face much higher fees – in UK universities unless a deal was struck with authorities there.He said there would likely be greater demand for places in Irish universities not just from Irish students, but from European Union students seeking to study in an English-language environment.
