The school accreditation process will consider matters, such as geographical location, accessibility, enrolment capacity and demand for places. The EQI ISP accreditation process is based on compliance with the
Education Services for Overseas Student (ESOS) Act 2000 and
National Code of Practice for Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students 2018.
Eligible schools do not need to apply for this funding. Entitlements will be automatically calculated and processed based on international student data identified by EQI.
