International Students

Welcome to the Navitas College of Public Safety (NCPS). International students form a valuable part of the NCPS student body bringing diversity, experience and enthusiasm to each campus.

Living and studying in a different country is both exciting and challenging. Our Student Services team aim to make this transition as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

If you are a Student Visa holder who is studying at NCPS, there are some additional rules and responsibilities covered by the ESOS Framework that you must abide by during your studies.

As a holder of a Student Visa, you are covered by the Education Services of Overseas Students (ESOS) legislative framework and must abide by some additional rules and responsibilities as a condition of your enrolment at NCPS. Some of your responsibilities are highlighted below:

Orientation

International students will be provided with an additional session at Orientation.

Change of address updating (Visa requirement)

International students are required to notify the College within 7 days of any change of address as a condition of their student visa.

Your address can be updated on the Student Portal under my personal details section on the left hand side.

When advising of your change of address please ensure you have provided us with your current address, and current phone contact details and personal email address.

Please also ensure that you promptly respond to any email from the College asking you to confirm your contact details.

Failure to keep the College informed of your current contact details may result in your visa cancellation.

Course Progression

You are considered to have made satisfactory course progression if you have passed at least 50% of your units in a standard full year of academic study of three study periods. You are considered to be at risk of not making satisfactory course progression if you do not pass more than 50% of the units attempted in two consecutive study periods. If you are identified as being at risk, you will be required to enter into a learning contract with NCPS as is specified in the College’s academic intervention strategy.

If you feel that you are having difficulties with any of your coursework, the College strongly advises you to contact Student Services for assistance as soon as possible.

Please note that if you do not meet satisfactory performance standards after entering into a learning contract your progression may be reported to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection and your Student Visa may be impacted. For more information see the International Students Course Progression Policy.

Fees

All fees must be paid upfront before the re-enrolment cut-off date for each term. When you re-enrol through the my.navitas-professional.edu.au student portal an invoice will be generated for you. Please allow adequate time for any overseas payments to be processed before the re-enrolment cut-off date.

Deferral

An International student may apply to defer or suspend enrolment in their course. Students who wish to defer or suspend their studies must complete and lodge the International Student Application for Deferral of Studies. International students are advised that deferring or suspending their enrolment may affect their student visa.

The college will only consider the application to defer the enrolment of an international student on the grounds of compassionate or compelling circumstances. It is a condition of your Student Visa that you are not permitted to defer your enrolment unless you are able to provide documentation which supports your application for compassionate or compelling circumstances. If you feel you have experienced these special circumstances please contact Student Administration to discuss your situation.

It is also recommended that you contact the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.

Graduation

When you have completed your course you will need to apply to graduate by completing an Application to Graduate. The graduation ceremony is normally held in March of each year.

International Student Key Contacts

It is important to contact NCPS as soon as possible if you have any questions or concerns about your study.
