  • The releasing registered provider, or the course in which the overseas student is enrolled, has ceased to be registered
  • The releasing registered provider has had a sanction imposed on its registration by the ESOS agency that prevents the overseas student from continuing his or her course at that registered provider
  • Any government sponsor of the overseas student considers the change to be in the overseas student’s best interests and has provided written support for the change.
    • Please note that approval for the transfer is subject to the specific circumstances outlined in the regulations. For detailed information on the transfer process and eligibility criteria, please contact the international student office at ACMi.
