The proposed amendments to the ESOS Act would require the re-registration of all Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses of Overseas Students (CRICOS) registered institutions. Through re-registration, the Australian government has indicated it aims to restore confidence in the quality of education services of international students. The Bill also introduces provision of two new registration criteria so that only those institutions demonstrating genuine purpose and capacity to provide quality education will receive re-registration.
