Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) - Section contents

The Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 2000 protects the interests of international students by setting out standards for education providers.

These standards include requirements for staff capability, educational resources and facilities, marketing of courses and placement of students.

The Act also provides tuition and financial assurance via the Tuition Protection Service. The University of Melbourne has a fee policy that explains the calculation and payment of tuition fees, and the arrangements relating to refunds.
