Overview An Act to regulate higher education. The Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) regulates and assures the quality of Australia's large, diverse and complex higher education sector. The University must undergo reregistration every 7 years. This is via evaluation of the performance of the University against the Higher Education Standards Framework.

The Standards Framework comprises five domains: Provider Standards, Qualification Standards, Teaching and Learning Standards, Information Standards and Research Standards. The Provider Standards and Qualifications Standards are collectively the Threshold Standards which all providers must meet in order to enter and remain within Australia's higher education system

Return to Top Provider Registration
Description A registered higher education provider must apply in writing to TEQSA for renewal of its registration.

The application must be made in writing at least 180 days before the registration is to end, or a shorter period if approved by TEQSA. An agreement to any shorter period must be sought from TEQSA as early as possible prior to the 180 day period and extension of the deadline can be rejected.

Applications must be in the approved form, include all information requested by TEQSA, and must be accompanied by the applicable fee and Payment/Invoice Form.

Where possible, providers are encouraged to apply for renewal of registration at the same time as renewal of course accreditation, and where applicable, other regulatory processes such as CRICOS re-registration or an application to change provider category.

If TEQSA grants the application for renewal of registration, TEQSA will determine a new period for which the provider is registered. Under the TEQSA Act, this period cannot exceed seven years.

Providers that have any questions about renewal of registration should contact their TEQSA Case Manager.
