Course completion

​To comply with Standard 9 of the National Code of Practice for Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students (‘National Code’), Education Queensland International (EQI) must monitor the enrolment load of students to ensure they complete their course within the duration specified in their Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE). EQI will only allow students to extend the ex​pected duration of study for their course through the issuing of a new CoE in limited circumstances.  
This procedure outlines:

  • the responsibilities within each Queensland state school for monitoring the workload and progress of overseas students enrolled in an EQI program (‘students’); and

  • the process EQI follows when assessing and making decisions about requests to extend the duration of a student’s study (and issue a new CoE).

School International Student Coordinator

The international student coordinator must monitor the workload and progress of each overseas student enrolled in an EQI program (‘student’) to ensure that, at all times, the student is in a position to complete their course within the timeframe specified on the student’s CoE.
The international student coordinator must refer requests to extend the duration of a student’s study (and issue a new CoE) to the Director, International Student Programs (ISP) at EQInternational@det.qld.gov.au and the email must include evidence that the student will not complete the course within the timeframe specified in the student’s COE because:

  • compassionate or compelling circumstances apply (PDF, 500KB)​; or

  • of the school implementing its intervention strategy for students who are at risk of not meeting satisfactory course progress; or

  • an approved deferral or suspension of study has been granted under EQI’s deferral, suspension, cancellation of enrolment policy in the student’s enrolment agreement.

Director, International Student Pr​​ograms, EQI

The Director, ISP will make a decision within 5 working days of receiving a request and will notify the International Student Coordinator and the student, in writing, of the decision.​
