International engagement

TEQSA plays a vital role in the global quality assurance and regulation of Australia’s higher education sector – protecting the reputation of the growing, vibrant sector while safeguarding student interests.

We work closely with international higher education quality assurance and regulatory agencies and participate in global forums, and have signed memorandums of understanding to help achieve this.

TEQSA is presently developing a new international engagement strategy. To find out more, please email comms@teqsa.gov.au.

International projects

APEC Quality Assurance of Online Learning Project

APEC QA of Online Learning Project

The Department of Education and Training approached TEQSA in mid-2016 to manage a project focused on the quality assurance of online higher education for countries in the APEC region. The project deliverables include the development of a Discussion Paper and Toolkit, a workshop on the Toolkit with representatives from a range of APEC economies followed by a limited number of validations in Indonesia, Vietnam and Mexico and finalisation of the discussion paper and toolkit. This work was completed in 2017. 

Toolkit to support quality assurance agencies to address academic integrity and contract cheating

Toolkit to support quality assurance agencies to address academic integrity and contract cheating

The toolkit was developed to share Australia’s lessons with our colleagues in quality assurance agencies in the global fight against contract cheating and other threats to academic integrity. It applies the principles of quality assurance to creating strong frameworks that support academic integrity.

TEQSA led the development of the toolkit which was funded by a grant from the International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (INQAAHE).
