Language of migration: education industry versus the migration industry

By Michiel Baas

Abstract

Recent research shows that some Australian tertiary education institutions have recruited international fee-paying students whose English is limited. The author examines this issue by drawing on his fieldwork among Indian students coming from areas outside the major cities in India, and the branches of the Australian education industry that service them. These students often have poor English and have been recruited by special-purpose agencies with financial links to recently-established private colleges in Melbourne
