Education System of Australia

Education System of Australia

Compared to other countries education is globally recognized. The Australian education system is distinguished from many other countries by the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). The AQF was established in 1995 and is a national policy that covers qualifications from the tertiary education sector (higher education, vocational education and training) in addition to the school leaving certificate, called the Senior Secondary Certificate of Education.

Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act

The Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) framework protects the rights of international students studying in Australia, including:

  • Your right to receive, before enrolling, current and accurate information about the courses, fees, modes of study, and other information from your institution and your institution’s agent.
  • Your right to sign a written agreement with your institution before paying fees, setting out the services to be provided, fees payable, and information about refunds of course money. Make sure to keep a copy of your written agreement.
  • The Tuition Protection Service (TPS) is a placement and refund service for international students, which is activated in the event that your institution is unable to teach your course.

The institutions’ responsibilities

The ESOS framework sets out the standards that Australian education providers must meet in offering education and training services to international students. ESOS and the National Code also outlines the responsibility of providers in managing their education agent network. These standards cover a range of information you have a right to know and services that must be offered to you, including:

  • Orientation and access to support services to help you study and adjust to life in Australia.
  • Contact details of officers available to help international students.
  • If you can apply for course credit.
  • When your enrollment can be deferred, suspended or cancelled.
  • What your institution’s requirements are for satisfactory progress in the courses you study and what support is available if you are not progressing well.
  • If attendance will be monitored for your course.
  • A complaints and appeals process.

Your responsibilities

As an overseas student on a student visa, you have responsibilities to:

  • Satisfy your student visa conditions.
  • Maintain your Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for the period of your stay.
  • Meet the terms of the written agreement with your institution.
  • Inform your institution if you change your address.
  • Maintain satisfactory course progress.
  • If attendance is recorded for your course, follow your institution’s attendance policy.
  • If you are under 18, maintain your approved accommodation, support and general welfare arrangements.

What is Course credits and exemptions?

Course credits for prior learning can allow you to build on what you have already studied.

In Australia, you can apply to use course credits you have already earned to build on your studies.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), or credit transfer, refers to the recognition of previous informal and formal training, work experience, professional development, professional licensing and examinations, and other work-based education and training. Credit transfer is available in both undergraduate and postgraduate programs, at the discretion of the institution. Credit can also be given for previous vocational education and training (VET) studies.

Australia has a system to recognize qualifications from other countries. The Australian Government organization National Office of Overseas Skills Recognition (NOOSR) helps Australian institutions to recognize qualifications from overseas, allowing for recognition of your previous studies.

Below is a brief explanation of the difference between credits and exemptions.

Credits

You need an overall number of units or subjects during a course to earn your qualification.

If you bring work or study experience from somewhere else, your new provider may allow credit that contributes to your total, so you don’t have to repeat classes.

Exemptions

An exemption also means you’re excused from attending a unit or subject.

If you get an exemption rather than a credit, you might have to take another unit or subject to earn credits and contribute to your overall qualification.

How do you get a course credit or exemption?

The requirements and process vary by institution and course, but generally details of your work experience can be anything that proves your experience – from a workplace reference to a published work. Study experience will usually be an academic transcript or qualification documents from your last education institution, as well as a description of the curriculum you covered.

Once you have decided on a preferred course and institution, contact one of their course specialists or admissions team and tell them about your study plan. They will be able to give advice about the best education pathway that allows for credits or exemptions and suits your goals.

How to transfer institute or course if you are an international student?

There are a number of things to organize and check before you make the decision to change either your course of study or your institution.

Contact student support services on campus or other advisors for help and advice.

You must check your student visa requirements and ensure you follow the correct procedures to maintain your visa. It’s important that you do not assume that the advice you get from friends, fellow students or education agents is correct. Make sure to keep a copy of any course cancellation and enrolment paperwork.

Remember, if you change your institution or course at any time you must contact the Department of Home Affairs and provide an electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE) certificate from your new institution.

Changing your course

If you want to change to a new course at the same institution you are currently studying and at the same level of qualification, you do not need to apply for a new student visa unless your current visa is about to expire.

Changing your level of qualification

If you want to change your level of qualification, for example from a Diploma to a Bachelor Degree, you may need to apply for a new student visa because your visa subclass may change. Visit the Department of Home Affairs website for more information.

Changing your institution

If you are thinking of moving to a different institution, speak with your current institution for information on doing this. In most circumstances the new institution will be restricted from enrolling you if you have not completed a minimum six months of the main course of study (at your current institution) for which your visa was granted.

Work Options

Work Options

As an international student working in Australia, you have the same protections as any Australian in the workplace. Here are some things you need to know.

  • Work hours: Remember – as an international student you can work up to 40 hours every two weeks during term time, and unlimited hours during your holiday breaks. It is important you keep to this limit – it is what you agreed to when you were given your student visa.
  • Your pay: Australia has a minimum wage. You must be paid at least this amount – it’s the law!
  • Paying tax: If you’re working in Australia, you might need to pay tax depending on how much you earn. Get a Tax File Number (TFN) before starting work. Give your TFN to your boss to make sure you do not pay more tax than you should. Only apply for a TFN once – it is yours for life!
  • Payslips: In Australia, you must get a payslip within one working day of getting paid. Normally, workers get paid weekly, fortnightly (every two weeks) or monthly. The payslip is an important document.
  • Casual work: In Australia, you will find many casual roles. In casual work, you don’t have a fixed number of hours every week. This means you can manage your own time better.

Post Study Work Visa (Temporary Graduate (Subclass 485))

  • This visa allows eligible international students who have completed an Australian education to stay in Australia to gain work experience.
  • You can work in Australia for a period of 18 months and up to 4 years, depending on your qualification.
  • This visa does not restrict the type of work you may do or the number of hours you may work.
  • Applications for this visa must be made in Australia and you must hold an eligible student visa in the last 6 months.
  • You must meet Australian study, English proficiency, health insurance, health and character requirements.
  • You must meet the specific requirements of the stream in which you are applying for this visa.

Pre-Departure

Pre Departure

Once you have been accepted to study at an institution and have received confirmation of your student visa, the next step is to start planning for your arrival.

Here is a checklist to help you plan your departure:

  • Passport and Visa – Check that your passport is valid for at least 6 months prior to your entry into Australia, and that you have all your visa documentation. It is also a good idea to make copies of your passport in case you lose your passport.
  • Student enrolment and orientation documents – You will need your electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE) and student information pack, which you will have received from your institution.
  • Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) – This is a requirement for entry to Australia, so make sure you have your health cover policy arranged before you leave home.
  • Travel Insurance – You should also consider travel insurance, which covers things your OSHC may not – such as cancelled flights, lost documents, dental or optical care, etc.
  • Airfares – Make sure you are aware of the date and time of your flight. Keep your flight details in a safe and secure place, with your passport and visa.
  • Contact details – You may want to have a list of emergency contact details for family, as well as your embassy, accommodation and institution details. If you have used an education agent, keep their contact details on you, in case you need to contact them once you arrive in Australia.
  • Australian currency – There are money exchange places available at Australian airports and in cities, but it is recommended to have some Australian currency on you prior to leaving your home country.
  • Transport from the airport – Whether you are taking public transport, a taxi, or you are being picked up from the airport by your education provider, it is important that you have all the details including the time, the route and, if your travel has been arranged by your institution, their contact details.

Customs and Border Protection

You need to be aware of what you cannot bring into Australia and therefore what you should not pack. It is illegal to carry (or use) drugs including marijuana, cannabis, heroin, cocaine and amphetamines in and out of Australia. There are a number of items that you must declare upon your arrival in Australia including:

  • Firearms, weapons and ammunition.
  • Currency amounts of A$10,000 (or foreign equivalent).
  • Some medicines.

You should also be aware that as a routine part of their work, Australian Border Force officers may question travellers at any time, and trained dogs may also be used to detect illegal drugs or prohibited imports. If you are in doubt, declare your goods or ask an Australian Border Force officer for advice. Declaring goods does not necessarily mean your baggage will be examined.

People who deliberately break Australian Customs and Border Protection regulations could be fined or taken to court. You can also find information at the Department of Home Affairs website.
