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.


More than 1.4 million students were studying in Australian higher education courses in 2015, a three per cent jump compared to the previous year, according to the latest Statistics Report on TEQSA Registered Higher Education Providers.

The second annual TEQSA Conference will be held at the Grand Hyatt in Melbourne on 29–30 November 2017. The call for papers has now opened.

The Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency has renewed its Memorandum of Cooperation with the Malaysian Qualifications Agency, further reinforcing a joint commitment to quality higher education.
