When an overseas student requires a release to transfer
Generally, overseas students cannot transfer between registered providers prior to completing six calendar months of their principal course.
The principal course is the main course of study to be undertaken by an overseas student where the student visa has been issued for multiple courses, and is usually the final course of study. The first six months is calculated as six calendar months from the date an overseas student commences their principal course.
This means the transfer restriction applies to a student during all courses they undertake prior to the principal course.
For an overseas student to transfer before completing six months of their principal course, the overseas student must either obtain a release from their registered provider, or meet one of the following conditions:
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 their course with 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. This usually applies where the overseas student’s study in Australia is sponsored by the government of another country.
After completing six calendar months of the principal course, an overseas student can transfer without needing to meet any of the conditions.
