CRICOS

Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS)

The Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) is an Australian Government website that lists all Australian education providers that offer courses to people studying in Australia on student visas and the courses offered.

Only CRICOS courses can be offered to international students studying in Australia on a student visa and only registered education providers can deliver courses for overseas students. CRICOS lists all registered providers and courses available to student visa holders in Australia.  Information in CRICOS and PRISMS (Provider Registration and International Students Management System) form the basis of the electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCOE).

CRICOS Registration

To become CRICOS registered, a provider must demonstrate that it complies with the requirements of the National Code of Practice for Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students 2018 (National Code)

The Tertiary Education Quality adn Standards Agency (TEQSA) is responsible for assessing applications for inclusion on the CRICOS and may approve that a provider be registered on CRICOS. Only CRICOS-registered providers can offer programs to overseas students in Australia on student visas.

For more information on CRICOS registration, refer to the CRICOS Frequently Asked Questions

The Office of Planning, Quality and Review looks after the registration process for all CRICOS applications. Please contact quality@scu.edu.au for assistance. 

 

SCU Process for CRICOS course registration

CRICOS Approval Process 2021

  1. Faculty will complete the forms as relevant once the course has been approved by Accreditration Committee or Academic Board.
  2. Associate Dean (Education) completes and approves the details.
  3. Faculty submits the information to PQR

COURSES WITH PROFESSIONAL ACCREDITATION

We cannot use/promote a CRICOS code or invite students to apply if the course has a pending professional accreditation and the course is a direct pathway to the profession.

When the professional accreditation is attained, please send the email confirmation through to PQR quality@scu.edu.au and/or the link to a public register showing registration is current.

COURSES WITH SPECIALISATIONS

Specialisations can be registered as a single course of study on CRICOS, if all pathways through the course lead to the same award and share all of the characteristics required under the ESOS act. These characteristics are:

  • qualification level
  • broad field of education (FOE)
  • cours duration
  • course location
  • any work based componentes

For example, if a course undergoes an amendment to add a new specialisation/s or a major/s that requires a student to undertake work integrated learning, then a new course application is required for each of those specialisations or majors within that course.

e.g. Bachelor of Business Enterprise (Financial Services)
