SEATTLE (AP) — A Seattle-based study-abroad program has suddenly shut down and stranded more than a dozen students in Beijing. The company’s headquarters in Seattle is closed, its phones are disconnected, and its website says the company has filed for bankruptcy.
Most of the 67 students from all over the world have either gone home or arranged for classes at other schools in Beijing.
Those who have paid for the program are trying to recover more than $100,000 from WorldLink Education in combined payments for tuition, housing, and other expenses. But so far, they have been frustrated in their efforts. ♦
