Return to ESOS Compliance

With travel restrictions lifted and overseas students able to travel to Australia for study, the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) have announced that education providers are expected to return to full compliance with the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Framework by 30 June 2023. This means that classes for Trimester 3, 2023 will be continued to be delivered face-to-face on campus with a small number of online classes. Students must not study more than one third of the units in their entire course online and are only permitted to enrol into a minimum of one unit online each study period (if they haven't already undertaken the maximum number of permitted online units) to ensure adherence with student visa requirements.

Work restrictions for students studying on a student visa overseas students were reinstated on 1 July 2023. Student visa holders can work no more than 48 hours a fortnight while studying. Student visa holders have no work restrictions when their course of study or training is not in session.
