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.


Almost 200 representatives from the Australian higher education sector have taken part in the TEQSA forum on first-year student attrition.

TEQSA has begun a national stakeholder survey to gain feedback on its performance over the past 12 months.

TEQSA has welcomed the release of the Department of Education and Training’s implementation plan on improving the transparency of higher education admissions.
