During the COVD-19 pandemic, changes were made to the delivery of courses to overseas students who were studying offshore or in Australia.
Now that international borders have opened, TEQSA and ASQA have announced that education providers are expected to return to full compliance with the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Framework by 30 June 2023.
To ensure full compliance from 30 June 2023, make sure that you are aware of these requirements to ensure you meet the Visa requirements.
The ESOS Framework applies to the delivery of courses to overseas students who hold an Australian student visa. This includes courses delivered to overseas students who hold an Australian student visa but who are currently offshore.
In Trimester 2, starting 5 June 2023, you will need to ensure you are onshore studying or have advised us of your intentions to continue studying offshore for the duration of the course or that study period.
Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School students
In Term 3, starting 3 July 2023, you will need to ensure you are onshore studying.
From 30 June 2023, students must return to a minimum of 20 hours face-to-face scheduled classes per week.
