The Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) monitor and regulate the higher education sector's involvement with overseas students studying in Australia on Student Visas. Higher education providers must meet minimum standards set by TEQSA to enable registration under the ESOS (Education Service for Overseas Students) Act. This protects Australia's reputation for delivering quality education services and the interests of overseas students, by setting minimum standards and providing tuition and financial assurance.
The ESOS Act mandates a nationally consistent approach to registering education providers so that the quality of the tuition and care of students remains high. The professionalism and integrity of the industry are further strengthened by the ESOS Act's interface with immigration law. This imposes visa-related reporting requirements on both students and providers. The National Code is a set of nationally consistent standards that govern the protection of overseas students and delivery of courses to those students by providers and registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS).
