“TEQSA welcomes Minister Tudge’s confirmation that the Australian Government will continue to waive a range of TEQSA fees and charges until 31 December 2021 to support providers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“With the Minister also confirming that TEQSA will start phasing in cost recovery arrangements from 1 January 2022, TEQSA has today released a consultation paper outlining our proposed approach.

“It is important that TEQSA has a clear understanding of the higher education sector’s views on this proposal, and I encourage all stakeholders to have their say during this consultation.”

“TEQSA’s consultation runs until 3 June 2021. Stakeholders can view and respond to the consultation paper at TEQSA’s website.”

“TEQSA will review all feedback received and consider how the proposal might be adapted to best support the transition to increased cost recovery before seeking the Minister’s approval.

“Final implementation arrangements will then be outlined in a subsequent Cost Recovery Implementation Statement that will be released later this year.”
