Our purpose is to protect student interests and the reputation of Australia's higher education sector through a proportionate, risk-reflective approach to quality assurance that supports diversity, innovation and excellence.

We are guided by our TEQSA values of trust, respect, accountability and collaboration as we work across the higher education sector to assure public confidence in higher education.
