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 the summary report from its August 2016 sector consultation on TEQSA’s External Reporting Program.

TEQSA recently attended a landmark global quality assurance summit in Bengaluru, India. More than 120 delegates from 20 countries and 16 global quality assurance bodies attended including the three biggest higher education systems in the world - United States of America, China and India.

On 12-14 September, 2016, TEQSA CEO Mr Anthony McClaran visited Beijing to sign Memorandums of Understanding with two Chinese quality assurance agencies, meet with other quality assurance agencies and two Chinese higher education providers. The trip was co-ordinated in collaboration with the Australian Embassy in China.
