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 has continued to strengthen its international ties, signing a Memorandum of Cooperation with the RAK Economic Zone Authority.

Almost 200 representatives from the Australian higher education sector have taken part in the TEQSA forum on first-year student attrition.

TEQSA has begun a national stakeholder survey to gain feedback on its performance over the past 12 months.
