Admissions transparency

This webpage provides information for higher education providers about admissions transparency to support compliance with their obligations to domestic undergraduate students.

Admissions transparency means that prospective students can easily find good quality admissions information that allows them to compare courses and providers and make informed study choices.

By ensuring that admissions transparency requirements are met, providers can build trust with prospective students and ensure that their admission processes are fair and consistent.

In 2021, the Higher Education Standards Panel commenced a project looking at admissions transparency for postgraduate and international students. You can learn more about this project on the Department of Education’s website.


Higher education providers are responsible for ensuring that their admission processes are transparent, fair and consistent with their obligations under the Higher Education Standards Framework (Threshold Standards) 2021 (HES Framework).

TEQSA requires that providers comply with admissions transparency requirements to ensure that prospective domestic undergraduate students have clear and accurate information about the provider’s admission processes.
