The Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000
St John’s Grammar School is a registered school provider that offers education services to overseas students. To provide education services to international students the School must comply with rules and regulations required by Education and Early Childhood Services Registration and Standards Board of South Australia.
The Legislative Framework incorporates the:
- ESOS Act 2000
- Education Services for Overseas Students Regulations 2019
- The National Code 2018
- Tuition Protection Services (TPS)
The ESOS Framework has been designed to establish and maintain national standards for the provision of education and training services to international students. The legislation aims to protect international students and guarantee quality education. It also enables the Department of Education and Training to take action against providers who are found in breach of their obligations. Please see the ESOS Framework Student Fact Sheet for more information including the rights and responsibilities of international students.
The Legislative Framework relates only to students who are enrolled in an onshore program and remain in Australia on a Student Visa. This Legislation does not apply to students undertaking offshore programs or remaining in Australia on a temporary visa other than a Student Visa.

Tuition Protection Service (TPS)
The Tuition Protection Service (TPS) has been in operation since 1 July 2012. In the unlikely event your education provider is unable to deliver a course you have paid for and does not meet their obligations to either offer you an alternative course that you accept or pay you a refund of your unspent prepaid tuition fees the TPS will assist you in finding an alternative course or to get a refund if a suitable alternative is not found. For more information on the TPS see TPS Brochure and the TPS Website.
