How to find an overseas music education agency
The best and most affordable overseas music school in Australia is on a collision course with the Australian Government’s Department of Education, after a complaint was lodged with the Department by a foreign school.
The complaint was filed on March 11, 2018, and a reply was issued to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) in early February.
The Department confirmed the school had been the subject of an inquiry by the ACCC, and that the matter is currently under investigation.
The company’s response to the complaint stated: The Department of education has commenced an investigation into the alleged conduct of a foreign educational agency to determine whether the conduct of the Australian company was unlawful and whether it breached Australian law.
This investigation is ongoing.
As part of the inquiry, the Department will make a decision about whether to impose appropriate sanctions.
The investigation is currently in the early stages.
In the meantime, it is likely that the company will not be able to continue operating in Australia.
A spokesperson for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) told us the company had no further comment at this time.
If you are concerned about the safety of your child overseas, it’s important to get the information from a trusted source.

The Foreign Education Advisory Council (FEAC) Australia’s largest foreign education organisation, the FEAC, has released a statement saying it was aware of the complaints against the company, but would not be making any further comment.
“The FEAC does not comment on individual complaints,” it said in a statement.
“However, if there are concerns raised with an Australian business and we are asked to make a recommendation, we will do so.”
The FEAC was contacted by The Conversation about the matter, and said the organisation was aware the school was in the process of being investigated.
“We will not comment further as we are undertaking the review,” the FEac said.
The Feac said it was “disappointed” to learn of the allegations, and had reached out to the company for comment.
The FEA is the Australian equivalent of the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and is charged with protecting consumer rights online.
The Australian Government also said it is investigating the matter.
