Protecting academic integrity

It is important for higher education providers and TEQSA to be vigilant in protecting the integrity of Australia’s higher education system. On 4 September 2020, the Australian Government’s amendments to the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 came into effect, making it an offence to provide or advertise commercial academic cheating, sometimes known as ‘contract cheating’, services in higher education.

TEQSA is supporting providers to uphold academic integrity and address academic cheating, including through the development of education materials and sharing information about approaches to this issue, as well as working with providers and other stakeholders to support the implementation of these new laws.
