ESOS: Your Rights and Responsibilities

As an international student studying in Australia at the Australian Academy of Nursing [AAON], it is important that you fully understand your rights and responsibilities — meeting the minimum standards of academic performance, attendance and behaviour along with the conditions of your student visa.

Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 2000 sets out the legal framework and required standards AAON must uphold as a provider of quality education and training. This includes safeguarding the integrity of the Australian Government’s student visa regulations and delivering to you a quality vocational certificate course or diploma which is registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students [CRICOS].

AAON also follows the regulatory framework of the National Code of Practice for Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students 2018 [National Code] and provides streamlined placement, tuition and financial assurance under the legislated structure of the Tuition Protection ServicePlease refer to our Student’s Handbook and website for further information on AAON’s vocational courses, fees, student policies, OSHC and other important information associated with your visa application. Once you receive your electronic Confirmation of Enrolment, you will need to apply.

Also, view the Department of Home Affairs’ link. To streamline the process, a registered AAON student migration agent can assist you with your course application, enrolment, student visa and living arrangements or you may contact our student’s support team anytime.


Privacy management charter

AAON is bound by the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 [NSW], which protects your rights as a student studying in Australia.

This means that we only collate your information to facilitate your enrolment application, for ongoing academic assessments and student support services, or the exchange of information from another learning institution. In rare circumstances, we may also be required to disclose your details to the Department of Home Affairs [formerly the Department of Immigration and Border Protection] and other government agencies.

Our Admissions Team will be pleased to discuss any of the policies in greater detail.
