Charles Darwin University's responsibilities
All Australian universities accepting international students must follow a strict set of laws to ensure the international student is provided with fair and equitable service in accordance with the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 2000.

- Register on CRICOS
- Meet quality assurance standards
- Comply with tuition and financial assurance requirements
- Meet the obligations of registered providers
- Report students who do not comply with student visa conditions to the Department of Home Affairs
