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 published a detailed explanation of how its risk and standards based approach to assuring higher education standards is applied across the sector.

The Minister for Education and Training has announced new appointments to the TEQSA Commission.

TEQSA has signed a Memorandum of Cooperation with the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), a regulatory authority of the Government of Dubai.
