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.


The 2016-17 Federal Budget provides additional funding to TEQSA of $10.1 million or $2.5 million per year over four years.

TEQSA and the Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications have renewed their MoC for three years.

TEQSA has published its third statistics report on higher education providers, giving a whole-of-sector overview of higher education in Australia in 2014.
