As a Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) provider, you must submit certain information about overseas students to the Australian Government.
This information must be submitted electronically through the Provider Registration and International Student Management System (PRISMS).
Through PRISMS, certain Australian Government agencies can monitor student compliance with visa conditions and provider compliance with the Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000 (ESOS Act).
PRISMS is a secure system for providers to:
- issue 'Confirmations of Enrolment' to overseas students intending to study in Australia (the Department of Immigration and Border Protection requires these to issue a student visa), and
- report changes in course enrolment.
Access to PRISMS
PRISMS is administered by the Department of Education in association with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.
Once your CRICOS registration is approved, the Department of Education will provide you with access to PRISMS.
