Merrylands. Hairdressing college closed

The privately owned hairdressiong college, The Edge Academy, at Merrylands, has closed without notice after charging international students $7000 each for fees and equipment three weeks ago The college has been a registered training organisation, with the NSW Vocational Education and Training Accreditation Board (VETAB), since December 2004. The organisation currently has 66 students studying with 95 pending enrolments. A spokesman for VETAB said they had been told by owners of the academy that reasons for the closure included the changes to Federal Government policy. "Overseas students are entitled to a full refund of their fees from the Education Services for Overseas Students Assurance Fund," he said. "Domestic students can seek restitution from the NSW Office of Fair Trading”
