Copying for offshore students

The Educational Licensing Scheme provides a licence for University of South Australia staff to copy and communicate certain third party copyright materials for the educational purposes of the University without the need to obtain permission from the copyright owner.


For your course materials to comply with Australian copyright law, all copying and communication must be undertaken in Australia. If you wish to copy material in an offshore location you must abide by copyright laws and regulations of that country.


You can make course materials available to your students if:

  • You or the University of South Australia own the copyright in the work
  • The University has written permission to use the material
  • Your use is covered by one of the University's Statutory Licences
