Cheating websites blocked
Since August 2022, TEQSA has worked to disrupt almost 290 commercial academic cheating websites and 841 social media accounts, to protect the integrity of Australia’s higher education sector.
Australia’s anti-cheating laws make it an offence to provide or advertise academic cheating services in higher education.
Recently, TEQSA blocked an additional 37 websites under protocols with major ISPs. Additionally, we’ve worked with social media companies to continue removing posts and profiles that advertise academic cheating services.
A list of blocked illegal cheating websites is available. TEQSA also has a number of resources available to support higher education students, academics and professional staff to manage the risk to academic integrity. These resources include:
- Understanding academic integrity (for students)
- Protecting academic integrity (for academics and provider staff)
- TEQSA Masterclass: Contract cheating detection and deterrence
- Report a suspected cheating service
