TEQSA commences Federal Court action against alleged academic cheating service

7 July 2021

TEQSA has commenced Federal Court proceedings to block access to the website Assignmenthelp4you.com.

TEQSA is seeking an injunction requiring 51 carriage service providers to take such steps as the Court considers reasonable to disable access to the website.

This is the first time TEQSA has exercised its power to apply for an injunction under the amendments made by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Amendment (Prohibiting Academic Cheating Services) Act 2020.

The application for an injunction has been made on the basis that the website facilitates a contravention of section 114B of the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 (TEQSA Act).

TEQSA has filed the injunction application under Section 127A of the TEQSA Act.

The Australian Government Solicitor (AGS) is acting for TEQSA in this matter.

As this matter is presently before the Court, TEQSA is unable to comment further at this time.
