The Education Services for Overseas Students Regulations 2019 (ESOS Regulation) commenced on 1st October 2019. They replace the current 2001 regulations. It is important for providers to understand any changes to their obligations.
Key Changes to the legislative framework for overseas students
- Education Agents – providers must now give information about education agents that facilitated an overseas student’s enrolment.
- English language tests – providers must give more information about English language proficiency tests.
- Breach of visa requirements – providers must give more information about students who have failed to meet attendance or course progress requirements.
- Tuition fees – the definition of ‘tuition fees’ has been expanded to clarify what class of fees should be regarded as tuition fees.
- Other minor amendments
As part of our ongoing commitment to our clients, the Meshed Team have reviewed Meshed Platform functionality to identify and implement enhancements and new features required to ensure that Providers can meet ESOS Regulations in October 2019.
