Canberra, Sep 23 (ANI): In what is seen as a vital decision for the Government of India and Indian students in Australia, the Australian Government has released an issue paper that has sought advice on how to improve the country's troubled international education sector.

According to reports, Australian Education Minister Julia Gillard had last month requested former Liberal Member of Parliament Bruce Baird to conduct a review on the effectiveness of the 15.5 billion Australian dollar international education sector.

"This review is an opportunity for the sector to take stock, look at what is working, what could be improved," Chinaview.cn quoted Baird, as saying.

The decision came after a spate of incidents of violence against Indian students studying at various universities across the country, and some claims that education providers exploited students, which affected the reputation of the whole sector.

The paper identifies key areas affecting education quality and the experiences of international students in Australia. (ANI)
