International students could transfer courses and schools

International students could transfer courses and schools

According to National Code: Standard 7, international students could transfer courses and schools. It states the following:

  • Standard 7.2.2.2 – there is evidence of compassionate or compelling circumstances
    • the student should state reasonable, sound, and valid reasons
    • expensive tuition fees cannot be used as reason
    • transferring to another school with the same course is not allowed
  • Standard 7.2.2.3 – the registered provider fails to deliver the course as outlined in the written agreement
    • an example of this is when the course does not start as stated in the written agreement
    • another example of this is when a school is not able to provide facilities for the delivery of the course
  • Standard 7.2.2.4 – there is evidence that the overseas student’s reasonable expectations about their current course are not being met
    • an example of this is when the package VET courses are just jumping from one diploma to another without academic progression and skills development
  • Standard 7.2.2.5 – there is evidence that the overseas student was misled by the registered provider or an education or migration agent regarding the registered provider or its course and the course is therefore unsuitable to their needs and/or study objectives
    • Examples are the following:
      • when the registered provider or an education or migration agent states that the course being offered has occupations-pathways that could apply for General Skilled Migration, while in truth, it does not
      • when registered provider or an education or migration agent states that the school will be directly hiring the students while studying (the school cannot hire all students)
      • when registered provider or an education or migration agent states that it is easy to find jobs in Australia and the minimum salary/wage is $38 per hour
      • when registered provider or an education or migration agent tells the students that they could take any course like business courses and when they are in Australia, they could just transfer courses and schools — while in truth, some schools drag the transfer process in months which would mean waste of money and time for the international students.

It should be noted and could be argued also that International students are considered consumers and have the freedom of choice. And, it is also basic human rights of all citizens of any country, including Australia, the right to choose.
