Complaints about TEQSA

TEQSA's Service Charter sets out the commitments we make to everyone who deals with us. This includes higher education providers, members of the public, current and prospective students at higher education providers, TEQSA Experts and peak bodies. View our Service Charter.

You can contact us at any time to:

  • provide feedback
  • request more information
  • lodge a formal complaint.

There is potential for those who deal with us to be unhappy with our practices and services, so we have established a process to accept and investigate these issues.

In investigating these issues we will ensure impartiality, respond in a timely manner and use the findings to improve our practices.

If you are dissatisfied with a regulatory decision we have made you can make an application to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) for an external review. More information is available at the AAT’s applying for a review page.
