Registration fact sheet for VET courses and ELICOS

On 11 December 2015 the Education Services for Overseas Students Amendment (Streamlining Regulation) Act 2015 was passed by the Australian Parliament. It simplifies the registration process for education institutions that provide services to international students under the Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000 (ESOS Act). These changes start on 1 July 2016.

This fact sheet outlines the main changes affecting registered vocational education and training (VET) providers, as well as providers of English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students (ELICOS) where these providers are regulated by the National VET Regulator – the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA).
