About fifteen years ago Australian education took a turn toward commercialization and internationalization. At the time, with initiatives like Flexible Learning Leaders, it had a world-leading presence, but with commercialization things went behind closed doors. Now, according to this article, which draws on a series of ABC reports, this trend may be coing to an end. "Recently, the Australian media has reported on unethical approaches to internationalisation of higher education... the very high level of tuition fees.., concerns that universities may be lowering English language proficiency levels... (and) the fact that there are few job opportunities available for international students." According to Fay Patel, "It is time to make ‘the call’ and pronounce that this kind of exploitative internationalisation is dead and has served its purpose."
