Administrators appointed to ParaPharm Pty Ltd (trading as Paramount Higher Education)

4 October 2018

TEQSA is aware that administrators have been appointed to ParaPharm Pty Ltd (trading as Paramount Higher Education) due to insufficient resources to continue operations. 

The administrators have informed TEQSA that Paramount Higher Education will cease operations immediately and that approximately 110 students will be affected by the closure of their higher education operations.

TEQSA is currently working with the administrators to attempt to ensure there are mechanisms in place for students to access copies of the results and relevant academic records to support transition to further study. Further information on this matter will be provided to students as soon as it is available.


FEE-Help students affected by the closure of ParaPharm can contact 1300 259 044 or email administrator [at] ta.education.gov.au (subject: Paramount%20higher%20education%20)

Students who have paid fees in advance can contact 1300 421 017 or view information on the Independent Tertiary Education Council Australia (ITECA) website.


ParaPharm Pty Ltd is registered as an Australian higher education provider until 31 December 2019. 

On 15 December 2017 Pragmatic Training Pty Ltd acquired 100 per cent of the issued shares in ParaPharm Pty Ltd.

Information regarding ParaPharm’s registration and accredited courses of study can be viewed on TEQSA’s National Register of Higher Education Providers.
