​The International Student Program (ISP) Quality Standards for Schools lists the requirements for all accredited schools in delivering education services to international students in Victorian government schools.

The Quality Standards provide a framework ensuring that accredited schools and the Department deliver high-quality services reflecting best practice in international student program delivery and ensures compliance with the ESOS National Code of Practice.

To access the Quality Standards for accredited Victorian government schools, see: International Student Program Quality Standards for Schools (docx - 18 (docx - 18.95mb)

School resources

Under each of the ISP Quality Standards, schools will find useful templates, resources and links which support and assist schools to administer the International Student Program.

Schools can modify these templates as they see fit or use their own resources where preferred. These resources can be accessed through the ISP Quality Standards document.
