Australia has received many hundreds of thousands of international students from around the world and is considered a leader in the field of international student services and consumer protection.
The Australian Government wants overseas students in Australia to have a safe, enjoyable and rewarding place to study. Australia’s laws promote quality education and consumer protection for overseas students. These laws are known as the ESOS framework and they include the Education Services for Overseas (ESOS) Act 2000 and the National Code.
The Overseas Student Ombudsman investigates complaints about problems that overseas students may have with private education and training providers in Australia. For more information please visit www.oso.gov.au.
