16 June 2017

Media Release

NOTE: TEQSA is unable to provide additional comment on this matter until an ongoing AAT review involving ASM and TEQSA has concluded. This information is intended to provide students affected by ASM’s closure with information regarding its operations and TEQSA’s regulatory functions.

The Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) has today announced the cancellation of the Australian School of Management’s (ASM) registration as a higher education provider.

Prior to the provider being placed in voluntary administration, TEQSA had initiated a compliance assessment on ASM’s operations, finding it had failed to meet a number of requirements of the ‘Threshold Standards’.

These standards must be met by all Australian higher education providers and aim to protect the interests of current and future students.

TEQSA chief executive Anthony McClaran said that the Agency had serious concerns about the provider’s operations prior to its collapse and had imposed conditions on its registration, preventing the enrolment or commencement of new students.

“TEQSA’s compliance assessment found a number of issues with ASM’s operations, including its admissions policies, entry requirements and provision of information to current and prospective students,” Mr McClaran said.

“We are now working with ASM’s administrators and its tuition assurance providers to ensure, where possible, all students affected by ASM’s closure are supported to continue their studies”.

International students seeking information on tuition assurance can contact the Tuition Protection Service via their website or by calling 1300 980 434.

Domestic students seeking information on tuition assurance can contact TAFE Director’s Australia via their website or by calling (02) 9217 3180.
