The Statistics Report on TEQSA Registered Higher Education Providers (‘the Statistics Report’) outlines key statistics of the Australian higher education sector in 2014, drawn from information TEQSA holds as part of its regulatory activities.

As the national regulator of all Australian higher education providers, TEQSA is in a unique position in holding broad information relevant to all parts of the sector. TEQSA collects key information from higher education providers either not currently reporting or only partially reporting in the Department of Education and Training’s data collections and also holds information and insights about Australian higher education providers which are gathered through its provider registration and course accreditation activities.

This is the third release of this kind from TEQSA and presents data on providers, students, staff and finances in 2014. This year the report sees total comparisons with 2013 data where applicable. The Statistics Report is sourced from TEQSA’s Provider Information Request and TEQSA’s National Register, together with data from the Department of Education and Training’s Higher Education Statistics Collection.

The report and related spreadsheets are available for download below.
