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.


In early November TEQSA shared its experience in quality assuring online education at a workshop in Indonesia, with fellow Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) economies including Vietnam, China and Mexico.

More than 420 specialists came together in Melbourne on Wednesday 9 November for TEQSA's first conference titled Sharing Excellence: Assuring Quality held at the Park Royal Hotel in Melbourne.

At TEQSA's first ever conference, Wednesday 9 November, in Melbourne Dr Alan Finkel AO, gave the keynote address.
