Websites blocked to protect the integrity of higher education

TEQSA is continuing to protect students and the integrity of Australia’s higher education sector by blocking websites and social media accounts which offer academic cheating services.

We recently blocked an additional 79 websites, under protocols with major ISPs.

Australia’s anti-cheating laws make it an offence to provide or advertise academic cheating services in higher education. Since August 2022 TEQSA has blocked almost 370 websites. We’ve also worked with social media companies to remove posts and profiles that advertise academic cheating services.

A list of blocked illegal cheating websites is available on TEQSA’s website. TEQSA has also shared our entire database of suspected academic cheating services with all registered providers via Sigbox.

TEQSA has resources available for higher education students, academics and professional staff to support good practice in, and manage risk to, academic integrity, including TEQSA’s online Masterclass: Contract cheating detection and deterrence.

You can help us support academic integrity by reporting websites you suspect offer commercial academic cheating services.
