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 released updated information on the collection process for the 2016 PIR.

TEQSA commissioner Lin Martin called "living legend" by La Trobe University Vice Chancellor, Professor John Dewar, for contribution to student equity in Australia.

In February 2016, TEQSA's Chief Commissioner, Professor Nick Saunders and Senior Case Manager, Mr Julian Davis visited Tokyo to provide TEQSA with insight as to how Japan protects the reputation and quality of higher education.
