University College London: Withdraw registration 22 January 2020
Withdrawal of registration
Report on application to withdraw registration by University College London
TEQSA has determined, under section 43 of the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 (TEQSA Act), to grant the application from University College London (UCL) to withdraw its registration as a Higher Education Provider, with effect from 22 January 2020.
Main reasons for the decision
The main reasons for the withdrawal relate to the closure of UCL's Australian campus and its strategic shift to establish a partnership arrangement with the University of South Australia.
TEQSA made this decision on the basis that it was satisfied UCL had ensured appropriate teach out arrangements prior to the Adelaide campus closing. TEQSA was satisfied that students were appropriately notified and supported to either complete their courses, transfer into equivalent courses or had resolved not to complete an award. All students eligible to complete higher education awards have graduated, and those who were not yet eligible have transferred their enrolment to UCL in London.
In addition, TEQSA was satisfied there were appropriate arrangements for the retention of student records and replacement certification, which will continue to be held centrally at UCL in London, and that UCL Australia graduates would continue to be able to access transcripts and records from UCL in London.
