The International College of Queensland is required to send this report.
The Student is required to provide personal information and to be aware that the information that they have provided to the International College of Queensland may be made available to ASQA Australian Skills Quality Authority.

When studying in Australia, you will need OSHC for yourself, and any family travelling with you, before you arrive. It is a requirement of your student visa that you maintain OSHC for the duration of your time on a student visa in Australia.

Once an overseas Student has enrolled in a Course, the International College of Queensland must not allow them to defer commencement of their studies, or suspend their studies, except:
• On the grounds of illness, evidenced by a doctor’s certificate
• Or other circumstances beyond the control of the Student.
If a Student defers or suspends their studies on any other grounds, the International College of Queensland must report the Student as not complying with the Visa conditions to DIBP via PRISMS.
Records of attendance will be monitored every fortnight for non-attendance to ensure all Student attendance has not been less that 80% of scheduled contact hours. All Students who do not complete an 80% attendance rate, and do not have a legitimate reason for non attendance, will be reported to the appropriate authorities. All absences that are not appropriate and are pre-approved by the Principal, must be recorded as non-attendance.
Should attendance of any Student be recorded as less than 80 %, the Student will be contacted and offered assistance or counselling by the Student‘s Trainer/Assessor or the Principal of the International College of Queensland to resolve the non–compliance as soon as practicable. As soon as the Student is unable to achieve 80% attendance for the remainder of the term/semester the International College of Queensland must notify DIBP via PRISMS of the Clients’ failure to meet their visa conditions relating to attendance under the Migration Act 1958, and also notify the Student on their non-compliance.
The International College of Queensland must keep records of Academic Performance of each accepted Student for each requirement of the program for which the Student is enrolled. The records may be required by DIBP as evidence that a Student satisfied visa requirements relating to attendance and academic performance.
At the end of each term/semester if a Client’s results are unsatisfactory they have the choice to reattempt the assessments a further one more time after a short time of further study. Should the result still be unsatisfactory, the details of the academic performance must be reported to DIBP via PRISMS as the Client not complying with visa conditions.
