Summary: NLC works with DIISRTE on the SSAF compliance for OSA Campus Operations
National Liaison Committee for International Students (NLC), the national peak body for International Students, has been working with Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIISRTE) on the SSAF compliance to ensure independent OSA Campus Operations.

On 1 May 2012, the International Student Day, NLC launched NLCampaign 2012: Why OSA now? A $50 million question. 

The aim of the campaign is to revive International Students support services and democratic International Students representation by independent and autonomous Overseas Students Association (OSA) campus operations.

On 11 May 2012, NLC supported Overseas Students Association at University of Canberra (OSA@Canberra) to call for its campus election. Candidates for all positions must be currently enrolled full-fee paying international student at University of Canberra at the time of both nomination and election. Only currently enrolled full-fee paying international student at University of Canberra are eligible to vote at OSA Campus Election.

On 28 May 2012, the notice of OSA@Canberra campus election result was announced. The term of office would start from 1 July 2012 until 30 June 2013. For more details of OSA campus election 2012, please visit OSA@Canberra Online: canberra.osa.edu.au.

During our 100-day NLCampaign 2012, NLC had been talking directly with all Vice-Chancellor's offices to introduce our OSA@Canberra election and direct funding model.

On 8 October 2012, NLC published the list of 25 public universities which had confirmed to charge SSAF for International Students in 2013.

On 24 October 2012, NLC requested DIISRTE Secretary Don RUSSELL to look into compliance issues on the SSAF Representation Guidelines.

On 7 November, Associate Secretary Robert GRIEW wrote to NLC confirming the investigation was underway into the issues NLC had raised in relation to SSAF compliance. James HART, General Manager of Higher Education infrastructure Branch had been assigned to work on the investigation.

On 15 November 2012, NLC met with DIISRTE in Canberra to discuss about the implementation and compliance of the SSAF Represnetation Guidelines.

NLC will continuously work with DIISRTE on the SSAF compliance to ensure independent OSA Campus Operations.
