Spot admission for Australian college
A large number of students attended an awareness programme and spot admissions for Australian Technical and Management College (ATMC), Australia, here on Wednesday. The awareness programme was organised by the city-based Global Tree, an organisation facilitating overseas education, immigration and coaching for the aspiring local students, on its office premises on Bandar Road.
Project on safety
The number of students attending the awareness programme was impressive, in the wake of the recent reports of crimes and robberies against Indian students in Australia.
“Things are getting safer now with the Australian government initiating a series of steps to ensure safety of international student community,” said Asif Khan, Marketing and Business Development in Indian sub-continent for the ATMC.
Citing a few examples, he said that the Australian Institute of Criminology had undertaken a research project on the safety of international students in Australia. The project would compare the rate of crime against international students with the rate of crime against the broader Australian population.
Informing that India was the second top-source country for Australia's international education industry, Mr. Khan admitted that there was a ‘huge decline' in the India-to-Australia migration of student community after the attacks. “We are informing them about the new safety network put in place for their secure stay,” he said.
The ATMC is affiliated to the University of Ballarath, which had its beginning in 1870, making it the third oldest tertiary institution in Australia.
“The ATMC is an ideal education provider for students seeking an industry relevant curriculum. It offers a range of programmes in the field of business, accounting, information technology and networking, at diploma, bachelor degree and master degree level,” he explained.
The University of Ballarath and ATMC were working in partnership with the aim of providing students the relevant, high quality education,” said Mr. Khan.
Global Tree has been helping students pursue higher studies in the US, UK, Australia, Canada, Ireland, and New Zealand for the past nine years.
