Renewal of registration

Report on renewal of registration of CIC Higher Education Pty Ltd

On 19 August 2020, TEQSA renewed, under section 36 of the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 (TEQSA Act), the registration of CIC Higher Education Pty Ltd (CIC) in the category of Higher Education Provider, for a period of five years until 19 August 2025.

Main reasons for the decision

TEQSA has renewed the registration of CIC Higher Education Pty Ltd (CIC) for a shortened period to allow TEQSA the opportunity to closely monitor CIC's progress for a reasonable period and to then undertake a full, detailed assessment of CIC's compliance with the Higher Education Standards Framework (Threshold Standards) 2015.

TEQSA holds residual concerns in relation to:

  1. Academic Quality Assurance: Admission, External Referencing, Cohort Monitoring, Course Review (Domains 1, 5 and 6)
  2. Student Attrition (Domains 1, 5 and 6)
  3. Scholarship (Domain 3).

TEQSA will work with CIC to finalise a Voluntary Undertaking that specifies the actions CIC must undertake and the timeframes for those actions, in order to satisfy TEQSA that CIC will address these risks. TEQSA may also consider further assurance action in relation to these matters in the future.
