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 welcomed a British Council report which found Australia among the most attractive countries for those looking for international student mobility.

The first university response to the Australian Human Rights Commission’s report on sexual assault and harassment at Australian universities has made 18 ‘systematic recommendations’ aimed at creating safer university communities.

TEQSA has welcomed a national initiative that has seen all 39 of Australia’s public universities join together to tackle the issue of sexual assault and harassment.
