The Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act is an Australian Government Act that controls the delivery of international education in Australia. It was introduced to provide a legislative framework to ensure the quality of programs and services provided to international students and to ensure that the rights of international students are protected.

For all staff who are involved in international education it is important that you have a solid understanding of the Act and the National Code of Practice that provides nationally consistent standards for the conduct of registered providers of international education and the registration of their courses.

This course will provide an outline of the ESOS legislation and Parts A, B and C of the National Code of Practice, and provide greater insight in to Part 4 of the National Code, which outlines 15 standard that providers must meet in their interactions with international students.

An understanding of ESOS and The National Code of Practice is a pre-requisite for all staff who wish to engage in international student marketing and recruitment.
