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 is seeking feedback on the proposed public reporting of key financial metrics of registered higher education providers.

TEQSA has completed the monthly refresh of the National Register of higher education providers.

TEQSA’s Annual Report for 2014/15 was tabled in Parliament on 21 October 2015.
