Pupil rorts hit Navitas
A CRACKDOWN on international student visa rorters from India and Nepal has hit higher education provider Navitas. The Perth- based company says enrolment growth has been flat in Australia in the 12 months to June 30 due to several challenges. A key factor was tougher immigration and university scrutiny of applicants from Nepal and India, both considered high risk markets for visa rorts, the group’s chief executive Rod Jones says. He said the company reduced those enrolments with many showing interest in migration not education. India, China and Vietnam, continues to be Navitas’s biggest markets.
