Welcome to TEQSA

The Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) is Australia's independent national regulator of the higher education sector.

We aim to create a smarter future for Australia - by upholding standards for students.


TEQSA is preparing for its second annual conference, with students, quality and success acting as this year’s key themes.

New higher education providers tend to overestimate their financial performance prior to entering the higher education sector, a TEQSA report on the financial health of Australia’s sector has shown.

Under the VET Student Loans Rules 2016, the provisional approval for the tuition assurance schemes operated by the Australian Council for Private Education and Training and TAFE Directors Australia, expires on 31 December 2017.
