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 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.

Following a thorough assessment process, TEQSA has granted full self-accrediting authority to Avondale College of Higher Education.
