International Students and ESOS Act 2000
An Australian Student Visa allows you to stay, study, and work in Australia, while studying in a full-time education programme registered with Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS).
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. Australia provides rigorous protection for international students through the Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000 (ESOS Act) and related legislation, which protects and enhances Australia’s reputation for quality education, provides tuition protection and supports the integrity of the student visa program.
