Australia Institute of Business and Technology students

Important information for AIBT international students.

Redfern Legal Centre encourages any international student with questions about AIBT accreditation issues to come and see us for free, confidential advice.

Speaking to us about these issues will not put your enrolment at risk. 

A provider may only cancel a student’s enrolment if:

  • a student fails to pay a required course fee for a course in which they have a written agreement to continue
  • a student has not met the attendance requirements
  • there has been an instance of student misbehaviour. 

Seeking legal advice does not constitute misbehaviour.  

Any student who has been threatened with a cancellation of enrolment should contact Redfern Legal Centre or the Overseas Student Ombudsman immediately. 

This information should not be relied on as legal advice or as a substitute for legal advice. Overseas students should seek independent legal advice as appropriate.

You can contact Redfern Legal Centre by phoning 02 9698 7645 or by using our online form.


Redfern Legal Centre recently held a Legal Information Session for international students affected by Australia Institute of Business and Technology accreditation issues.

RLC is aware that a large number of international students have been affected. We are looking at the legal situation and whether students may have any compensation claims against the college.

Our free Legal Information Session, held at Redfern Legal Centre on 14 March 2019, gave AIBT international students an overview of their rights and legal options. We are looking at other ways we may be able to advise affected individuals. 

The following factsheets may provide some assistance with your situation:
