64 defunct colleges and institutes in Australia

The website of the High Commission of Australia in India – www.hcindia-au.org has listed the following colleges that have closed down. Please visit the page on Guidelines for Studying in Australia.

We quote: As a result, over 64 colleges and vocational institutions closed down during 2009-2010 affecting over 7000 Indian students, most of them in the States of Victoria and New South Wales. It may therefore be worthwhile to consider studying only at the higher end institutions and the government-run TAFEs which offer vocational and skill-specific training.

JAM went through the list and we found that several colleges mentioned in the list still have their websites and face book pages running. They do not show the institute as having shut down.
