Rights and responsibilities

The Australian Government wants international students to have a safe, enjoyable and rewarding study experience in Australia.

Australia is one of the few countries to enact laws to ensure quality education and consumer protection. These laws are known as the ESOS Framework and include the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 2000 and the National Code 2018.

The ESOS Act requires that all institutions that provide training to international students must be registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS). CRICOS registration guarantees that the course and the education provider where you study meet high standards necessary for overseas students.

The TAFE NSW provider code on CRICOS is 00591E. All our programs and courses offered to international students are also registered on CRICOS.

Information for students
