The Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) legislative framework is designed to ensure that Australia's reputation for delivering quality education services is maintained and that the interests of overseas students are protected. It sets minimum standards and provides tuition and financial assurance. Together with Australian immigration law, the ESOS framework also imposes visa-related reporting requirements on both students and educational institutions.
The regulatory environment for the ESOS framework comprises the following:
- Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act
- Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Regulations 2001
- The National Code of Practice for Registration Authorities and Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students (National Code)
Information on Federation University Australia's compliance with the ESOS framework can be found on the Centre for University Partnerships' (CUP) website.
