PROBLEMS with the new "genuine temporary entrant" test for student visas are frustrating recovery for English language colleges, according to Sue Blundell of the peak body English Australia.

"We're receiving feedback from the market that there continue to be problems with how this is being implemented," Ms Blundell said.

Applied since November 2011, the GTE test was a centrepiece of the Knight report on student visas but education sources complain the test is turning away genuine students, especially from English language and vocational education courses.
