Education and training providers may apply to be registered to provide education services (courses/s*) to international students who are in Australia on a student visa. The TQA is currently the designated authority in Tasmania for all education sectors and considers registration applications from providers who work in the following sectors:
Each provider has a defined scope that lists the qualifications, units and/or courses it is accredited to deliver to overseas students. Please refer to the courses section of this website for details about accrediting the courses you intend to offer.
Current CRICOS providers and courses
Details of providers registered to deliver eduation and training to overseas students in Tasmania and the accredited courses they offer are available on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) http://cricos.deewr.gov.au/.
Impending changes to designated authority from January 2012
Please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions related to changes to the designated authority arrangements under the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) legislative framework. Any updates to these transitional ESOS arrangements will be posted on the AEI website.
Further information will be provided to in due course.
Initial registration of providers and their courses on CRICOS involves two stages. The first stage is undertaken by the designated authority for that state and territory and the second stage by the Department of Education, Employment & Workplace Relations (DEEWR). A provider is not registered until both stages of this process have been completed. Once registered, TQA officers will add the provider to the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) http://cricos.deewr.gov.au/. Details of each course offered and its title, duration and cost are shown on the provider's CRICOS entry.
Please refer to Provider Registration Process for more information about registration.
The Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations regulates the education and training sector?s involvement with overseas students studying in Australia on student visas through the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) legislative framework. The ESOS framework protects Australia?s reputation for delivering quality education services and the interests of overseas students by setting out standards, roles and responsibilities for education institutions that teach overseas students, as well as providing tuition and financial assurance for students.
