Policies, rules, and regulations
In Australia, there are many regulations and laws to ensure international education is safe, fair, and reliable for international students. Some of these are specific to international education organisations, some are specific to international students and some are general laws that cover all organisations and all consumers. This section of the handbook will explain some of the key rules that you should know about and all the rules that we are required to tell you about.
It is important to know that the rules that are specific to international education institutions and students relate to student visa holders only – and the institutions that provide courses to them. These rules aren’t required by law to apply to students who are on a visitor or working holiday visa. However, as 80% or more of the students at UEC are on a Student Visa, we generally use these rules as our standard operating procedures.
