I was in town last week and there was a long procession of lads and ladesses with silly motar boards and gowns disrupting our public transport. They had graduated from RMIT, I think.
Great photo ops for the families of the graduates who seemed to all be of Asian heritage, and great publicity for RMIT. (mother showing photo to her sister in KL, this is my son when he graduated from RMIT in Melbourne (feel like adding, big deal. It is not Monash or Melbourne Uni, but I suppose it could be worse, Latrobe).
But like my view of parking fines, traffic fines, pokies, the same goes for overseas students.........more money to trickle down to me.
Seriously, Melbourne City would be a pretty dull place without them and some of them are hot!
