CRICOS and The Code
Quality Assurance: AUSTRALIA
All Australian universities and colleges that accept international students on to their courses must be CRICOS registered. CRICOS stands for Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students. All institutions registered with CRICOS must comply with the requirements of the National Code of Practice, which sets out strict rules designed to protect the interests of international students studying in Australia. The Code is maintained by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations, which regulates the activity of educational institutions in the international market. For more information, visit the CRICOS website.
Quality Assurance: NEW ZEALAND

The Code of Practice gives a framework for minimum standards, good practice procedures and a complaints procedure. The Code of Practice is administered by the New Zealand Ministry of Education.
