TEQSA's Student Expert Advisory Group was established to provide us with advice on approaches and strategies relating to regulation and quality assurance of higher education providers, with particular reference to the engagement of students.

- National Union of Students
- Council of International Students Australia
- Council of Australian Postgraduate Associations
- National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Postgraduate Association
- Union of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Students.
The group also includes representatives nominated by peak bodies including the Australian Council for Private Education and Training, Council of Private Higher Education and TAFE Director Australia.
Inaugural meeting – Canberra, 2 March 2018
The inaugural meeting of the Student Expert Advisory Group took place in Canberra on Friday 2 March. The group discussed raising student awareness of TEQSA’s regulatory decisions, how to involve the student voice in our regulatory work and the actions currently underway to tackle the issue of sexual assault and harassment.
The group is planning to meet at least three times per year, with the next meeting proposed for June.
