The Australian Government wants overseas students in Australia to have a safe, enjoyable and rewarding place to study. The Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000, or ESOS Act, establishes legislative requirements and standards for the quality assurance of education and training institutions offering courses to international students who are in Australia on a student visa. ESOS also provides tuition fee protection for international students.
The Australian Government has released the revised National Code of Practice for Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students 2018 (National Code 2018), which will commence on 1 January 2018. This fact sheet contains important information for student visa holders about living and studying in Australia, including your consumer rights and responsibilities as an international student and key things you should know before and during your study. Please see https://docs.education.gov.au/system/files/doc/other/esosstudentfactsheetv3.pdf.
Please Note: International Policies are subject to change, the latest version of the policies will be available on the school website.
