ASQA is responsible for the approval and registration of CRICOS providers delivering ELICOS programs except where the ELICOS program is delivered:
by the provider in its capacity as a school
by the provider in its capacity as a higher education provider, or
under an 'entry arrangement' with at least one higher education provider.
An 'entry arrangement' provides a pathway arrangement for an overseas student to study a higher education course or a Foundation Program with a higher education provider. The student completes an ELICOS course to meet the higher education provider's minimum English proficiency entry requirements.
ASQA does not require providers to be accredited with NEAS.
