TAFE institutes must meet special requirements under Australian Government legislation to ensure international students receive the highest education standards.
The Australian education and training system protects the quality of international study through a comprehensive quality assurance and accreditation framework. TAFE Queensland's quality framework includes:
Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF)
Links the schools, vocational education and training and higher education sectors into a single framework.
The AQF sets guidelines for the standard of qualifications and principles for institutes to issue qualifications. Institutions registered with the AQF have the full endorsement of Australian Government, State and Territory education ministers.
The AQF register safeguards the integrity of Australian education and training by identifying credible institutions and accreditation authorities.
Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 2000
International education and training delivered in Australia must meet and abide by the ESOS and relevant legislation.
When choosing an Australian education provider look for the CRICOS number to ensure your course is of the highest quality and is offered by a quality organisation.
All TAFE Queensland courses offered to international students are registered with the Commonwealth register.
