Australian School of Management’s registration cancelled

June 16, 2017

The Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) has today announced the cancellation of the Australian School of Management’s (ASM) registration as a higher education provider.

Prior to the provider being placed in voluntary administration, TEQSA had initiated a compliance assessment on ASM’s operations, finding it had failed to meet a number of requirements of the ‘Threshold Standards’.

These standards must be met by all Australian higher education providers and aim to protect the interests of current and future students.

TEQSA chief executive Anthony McClaran said that the Agency had serious concerns about the provider’s operations prior to its collapse and had imposed conditions on its registration, preventing the enrolment or commencement of new students.

“TEQSA’s compliance assessment found a number of issues with ASM’s operations, including its admissions policies, entry requirements and provision of information to current and prospective students,” Mr McClaran said. 

“We are now working with ASM’s administrators and its tuition assurance providers to ensure, where possible, all students affected by ASM’s closure are supported to continue their studies”.

International students seeking information on tuition assurance can contact the Tuition Protection Service via their website (https://tps.gov.au/) or by calling 1300 980 434.

Domestic students seeking information on tuition assurance can contact TAFE Director’s Australia via their website (http://tda.edu.au/) or by calling (02) 9217 3180.
