Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 2000:

The Australian Government wants overseas students in Australia to have a safe, enjoyable and rewarding environment in which to study. Australia’s laws promote quality education and consumer protection for overseas students. These laws include the ESOS Act 2000 and the National Code. As an International Student Visa holder, you enjoy various rights, including receiving accurate information about your course, tuition fees and refund policies, access to support services and complaints processes, and information about academic progress and changes to your enrolment.

The ESOS Act also provides obligations and restrictions on students. Under the Act, students must comply with the conditions of their student visa. The institution is also required to monitor and report on some of these conditions to the Department of Home Affairs (DHA). Information provided by students may be made available to Australian Government agencies as required by the ESOS Act and related legislation.
