On 26 November 2021, the Australian Government released the Australian Strategy for International Education 2021-2030 and announced key initiatives to support its implementation. As part of the measures to ensure the regulatory and legislative framework is best placed to support the outcomes of the strategy, the Department of Education, Skills and Employment will undertake a review of the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) legislative framework, including the National Code of Practice for Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students 2018.

The ESOS review will examine how the ESOS regulatory framework can evolve to support Australia’s international education sector to expand delivery of digital and blended modes of delivery and support diversification initiatives, while also continuing to protect Australia’s international reputation for providing a quality education.
