International students are being ‘deceived and exploited’: housing report

July 25, 2019 no comment kartik

International students are facing widespread exploitation in the housing market in major cities such as Sydney.

That’s the finding of a new report, with the author calling on all levels of government and universities to do more to protect students.

A new report by the University of New South Wales has found international students are facing widespread exploitation in tight housing markets, such as Sydney.

The report identifies key issues facing international students in the housing market.

They include bond issues, scams, lack of written agreements, unfair eviction, poor living conditions and racial discrimination.

Overcrowding is another major concern.

An investigation last year found international students in Sydney living in extremely overcrowded accommodation, with up to 10 people in a two-bedroom apartment.

They were all advertised online.
