    Ozfags, have at it. Almost AUD 5,000 for an unqualified English course from Applied Scholastics, front group for Scientology.

    Isn't that cute? They've learned to copy the lingo from other, legitimate educational material so it sound...legit. Also seeing a serious lack of typical Scilon syntax and spelling errors. Somebody learned what "proof reading" meant.

    POONED:

    Dear Hotcourses,

    Are you aware that Applied Scholastics is a front group for Scientology, the brain-washing science fiction cult that has been banned in several countries and is in great legal trouble in Australia?

    These courses merely serve as an entry point into the confusing and dangerous world of Scientology, which is well-documented on the Internet and at Wikipedia.

    WIKIPEDIA: "The Church of Scientology is one of the most controversial new religious movements to have arisen in the 20th century. It has often been described as a cult that financially defrauds and abuses its members, charging exorbitant fees for its spiritual services.[9][18][19] The Church of Scientology has consistently used litigation against such critics, and its aggressiveness in pursuing its foes has been condemned as harassment.[20][21] Further controversy has focused on Scientology's belief that souls ("thetans") reincarnate and have lived on other planets before living on Earth.[22] Former members say that some of Hubbard's writings on this remote extraterrestrial past, included in confidential Upper Levels, are not revealed to practitioners until they have paid thousands of dollars to the Church of Scientology.[23][24] Another controversial belief held by Scientologists is that the practice of psychiatry is destructive and abusive and must be abolished.[25][26]"

    You of course have the right to promote any organization that you want to, but in order to keep a good and unsullied professional reputation in the world of higher education you should reconsider your association with this group.

    $4860 for 24 weeks of a course that they say can be up to 48weeks. If they say you need the full 48 weeks then you not too far off the cost of a whole private school education.
