Private Colleges Close in Brisbane Perth Australia June 2011

More private colleges go to the wall.  HUNDREDS of overseas students have to be shifted to other courses following the collapse of two private colleges in Brisbane and Perth.

Perth Institute Western Australia and Kelly Colleges in Brisbane have closed.

“What we know at this stage is that both of these colleges were put into administration,” a spokesman for the peak private education body said tonight.

Details were sketchy but Kelly Colleges is thought to have 100-200 students and PIWA perhaps 500.

The peak Australian Council for Private Education and Training today put into action its tuition assurance scheme with a view to finding students courses at other providers.

This will be explained to students at meetings next week.

Colleges offering vocational training and English language courses are under pressure for a host of reasons including changes to visa and migration rules and the strong Australian currency.
