The Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Regulations 2019 change as from 1 Oct 2019

 

The Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Regulations 2019 were re-made on 4 April 2019, to replace the ESOS Regulations 2001, and are due to take effect on 1 October 2019.

 

There will be some minor changes, which mean providers will need to enter some additional information on PRISMS from 1 October 2019, such as:

  • information about education agents for every student enrolment;

  • the date a student took an English language test, if the student was required to provide evidence of their level of English language proficiency for the purposes of a student visa;

  • the class of student visa applicant a student falls within (commonly referred to as evidence exemptions), if a student was not required to provide evidence of their level of English language proficiency for the purposes of a student visa, and

  • information about students who have breached a condition of a student visa in relation to their course progress, including attendance.

DET will provide support materials to assist providers, such as a factsheet and instructions on how to use new features in PRISMS, in the lead-up to the commencement of the Regulations 2019 on 1 October 2019.
