The Australian government provides protections for international students through the Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000 (ESOS Act) and related legislation.

The Commonwealth government regulates the education and training sector’s involvement with international students who hold an Australian student visa through the Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000 (ESOS Act) and associated legislation. This legislation protects the interests of international students by mandating a nationally consistent approach to registering education providers so that the quality of the tuition and associated services offered to students remains high. The professionalism and integrity of the industry is further maintained by the ESOS legislation’s interface with immigration law. This imposes visa related reporting requirements on both students and providers.

CHC is registered with the Commonwealth government to provide higher education courses to overseas students and complies with the National Code of Practice for Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students 2018 (the National Code).

Further information regarding the ESOS legislative framework can be found here.

The Commonwealth government has introduced the Tuition Protection Service to assist students in circumstances when an education provider is unable to fully deliver a course of study. Details of this service are available on the TPS website.
