Overview The Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000 (the ESOS Act) regulates the education and training services provided to overseas students by providing tuition and financial assurance, as well as a provider registration requirement. The Act provides for sanctions for non-compliance with the Act as well as breaches of the National Code of Practice and ESOS Regulations. Where the University seeks to recruit, enrol or teach overseas students, or to advertise their ability to do so, it must be registered on the "Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students" (CRICOS). Providers of education services to overseas students, and their agents must not promote a course to overseas students or intending overseas students unless the course and provider are approved by the relevant State or Territory and are registered on CRICOS. All written materials, including those in electronic form, must identify the registered provider and provider number. The Act prescribes the records that must be kept for each overseas student including full name; residential address; date of birth; nationality; course start and completion day; attendance; academic performance; Details of payments received; health cover information; english language proficiency; passport and visa numbers. The University as a registered provider must generate an electronic Confirmation of Enrolment for intending overseas students. The Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) uses this in assessing the student's application for a student visa. Education providers are required to report students failing to comply with the attendance or course progress of theirvisa to the department and must keep a record of the reason for any termination of studies where applicable. The provision to impose an Annual Registration Charge for CRICOS registration and the calculation method for the charge is prescribed in the Act.

Description For the purposes of Standard 7.1.3, the registered provider must have and implement a documented policy and process for assessing overseas student transfer requests prior to the overseas student completing six months of their principal course (or for the school sector, until after the first six months of the first registered school sector course). The policy must be made available to staff and overseas students, and outline:
1. the steps for an overseas student to lodge a written request to transfer, including that they must provide a valid enrolment offer from another registered provider
2. circumstances in which the registered provider will grant the transfer request because the transfer is in the overseas student’s best interests, including but not limited to where the registered provider has assessed that:
(2.1) the overseas student will be reported because they are unable to achieve satisfactory course progress at the level they are studying, even after engaging with that registered provider’s intervention strategy to assist the overseas student in accordance with Standard 8 (Overseas student visa requirements)
(2.2) there is evidence of compassionate or compelling circumstances
(2.3) the registered provider fails to deliver the course as outlined in the written agreement
(2.4) there is evidence that the overseas student’s reasonable expectations about their current course are not being met
(2.5) there is evidence that the overseas student was misled by the registered provider or an education or migration agent regarding the registered provider or its course and the course is therefore unsuitable to their needs and/or study objectives
(2.6) an appeal (internal or external) on another matter results in a decision or recommendation to release the overseas student.
3. the circumstances which the registered provider considers as reasonable grounds to refuse the transfer
4. a reasonable timeframe for assessing and replying to the overseas student’s transfer request having regard to the restriction period.
