Cricos courses for a student visa.
CRICOS Australia shares courses that make international students eligible to apply for an Australian student visa.
The Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) is a government register. It provides a list of all education providers (high schools, colleges & universities), and their courses, which are approved for international students. If an education provider is not on the list, they can only teach to domestic (local) students.
Institutions in the list have reached the requirements and standards set by Australian government. In addition, each of the courses that they deliver to international students must also be approved. How do I know if a course is CRICOS-registered? It can be very frustrating to find the perfect course, but then find out it isn’t for international students. When you’re looking at the website of institutions, generally you should see a CRICOS Provider Code at the bottom (footer) of the website. If you do not see one, it likely means it only teaches domestic students. Here is an example:
How to Search for CRICOS Courses
You education agent has access to all of the courses you should be considering. However, you can also do your own CRICOS courses search. Be aware that the pricing you see on the CRICOS website is generally not up-to-date or special offers are not included. Also be aware that just because a course is listed in the CRICOS registry, it does not guarantee that the education provider is currently delivering that course. How to use the registry:
Select the Australian State in which you will study
Add the course keywords/name - it may require a few different variation to find the course name you are interested in.
Select the level of education
Click here to search the CRICOS website for course ideas.
Take all of this stress away with professional help. Education agents often have special offers to promote, and should assist free of charge. How can an education agent help me?

around becoming an International Student
TEQSA is closed from 12:30pm on Friday 22 December 2023 and re-opens at 9am on Tuesday 2 January 2024.
How to apply for CRICOS registration
To deliver higher education courses to overseas students, you first need to apply to TEQSA to be registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS).
Applications for CRICOS registration usually take 3 to 6 months for TEQSA to assess. This timeframe is dependent on a high-quality application with minimal delays in responding to TEQSA’s requests. Information on the entire registration process and timeframes can be found here . Once CRICOS registration is granted, it can take a further 2 to 4 weeks for a CRICOS code to be issued and the newly registered provider listed on the CRICOS register. Providers are unable to advertise courses to overseas students or begin recruiting overseas students until CRICOS registration is granted and a CRICOS code has been issued by the Department of Education.
1. Be registered as a higher education provider under the TEQSA Act
Before applying to be registered on CRICOS with TEQSA you must first be registered as a higher education provider under the TEQSA Act. TEQSA will not accept applications for CRICOS registration unless your institute has been registered as a higher education provider, except for providers seeking only to deliver English Language Intensive Course for Overseas Students (ELICOS) courses or Foundation Programs.
2. Prepare your application
Once registered as a higher education provider by TEQSA, you may begin to prepare your application for CRICOS registration. Please lodge your intention to apply for CRICOS registration by contacting the CRICOS team at [email protected] .
TEQSA highly recommends that you closely review the requirements of the Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000 (ESOS Act) and National Code of Practice for Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students 2018 (National Code) to understand your obligations. Your application should demonstrate how you meet, or will meet, each of these obligations. The evidence requirements for applications for CRICOS Registration can be found in TEQSA’s Confirmed Evidence Table (CET).
- Download Confirmed Evidence Table for CRICOS Registration (MS Word, 140 KB)
3. Submit your application
Once all evidence has been prepared, you can submit your application through TEQSA's provider portal . TEQSA will initially determine whether the application is complete and includes all required evidence. If not, TEQSA will notify you of what evidence is missing and provide an opportunity to submit this evidence to complete the application.
4. TEQSA assesses the application
Once your application includes all required evidence, TEQSA will begin its assessment. TEQSA assesses the evidence to determine whether the provider will comply with all requirements of the ESOS Act, the National Code, and any other relevant legislation within the ESOS Framework.
If TEQSA identifies any areas where the application is not compliant with these legislative requirements, or at risk of non-compliance, TEQSA will outline its findings in a proposed decision. You will be afforded an opportunity to respond to these concerns and submit additional or revised evidence to demonstrate compliance, usually within 28 days.
5. TEQSA’s decision
TEQSA may approve or reject your application. In doing so, TEQSA will notify you of its decision and the reasons for the decision in writing.
If TEQSA approves the application, it may decide to approve a period of registration less than the maximum 7 years. TEQSA may also decide to impose conditions on your registration to manage any risks that have not been fully addressed in the application.
If TEQSA decides to reject the application, or if you are dissatisfied with TEQSA’s decision, you may seek a review of that decision. Information on your options for review are outlined on our Review of TEQSA Decisions page.

Education institutions can only enrol and deliver education services to students in Australia on a student visa if they are registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) . Registered providers must meet, the requirements of the Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000 (ESOS Act) and the National Code of Practice for Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students 2018 (National Code). Any providers wishing to deliver English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students (ELICOS) or Foundation Program courses must also meet the ELICOS or Foundation Program Standards as relevant. See here for more information about the ESOS legislative framework .
Following amendments to the ESOS Act passed by Parliament in December 2015, registration requirements changed.
Any provider intending to offer education or training services to students must apply for registration to the ESOS agency for their education sector. ESOS agencies are responsible for making decisions on a provider’s registration and monitoring a provider’s compliance with the ESOS framework.
The Department of Education, Skills and Employment has fact sheets for each education sector outlining the registration and regulatory processes:
- Registration fact sheet for higher education, foundation programs and ELICOS
- Registration fact sheet for VET courses and ELICOS
- Registration fact sheet for schools
The ESOS agency is determined by the sector and jurisdiction a provider operates in. Please consult the ESOS agencies page for information on identifying your ESOS agency .
