Australia’s independent national quality assurance and regulatory agency for higher education is the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA).
Their objective is to safeguard students’ interests and the reputation of Australia’s higher education sector by using a proportionate, risk-based approach to quality assurance that encourages diversity, creativity, and excellence.
TEQSA requires that all organisations that provide higher education credentials in or from Australia be registered.
Public and private universities, Australian subsidiaries of overseas universities, and other institute of higher educations make up Australia’s higher education sector. Higher education institutions deliver degrees ranging from bachelor’s degrees and associate degrees to advanced diplomas and postgraduate degrees (graduate certificates and diplomas, masters and doctoral degrees).
What is Higher education?
Higher education, also known as tertiary education, includes diplomas, advanced diplomas, associate degrees, bachelor degrees (including honours), graduate certificates, graduate diplomas, masters degrees, undergraduate degrees, and higher doctoral degrees, which cover the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) levels 5-10.

The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) partners with the 15 National Boards to regulate Australia’s licensed health practitioners in order to protect the public. Their aim is to protect the public by establishing guidelines and policies that must be followed by all licensed health practitioners. Each Board has a health profession agreement with Ahpra that specifies fees, budgets, and Ahpra’s services.
What they do?
Across all professions registered under the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme, Ahpra partnered with 15 National Boards to ensure the public has access to a safe health workforce. Their top goal is still public safety. The Health Practitioner Regulation National Law (the National Law), which is in effect in each state and territories, guides any decision they make.
The regulatory duties of Ahpra are as follows:
- Professional Standards – They advise the National Boards on registration requirements, rules, and guidance for health practitioners.
- Registration – They ensure that only health professionals with the expertise and credentials to deliver professional and responsible services are registered to practice in partnership with the National Boards. APHRA also oversees the registration and renewal of eligible health practitioners from both the local and overseas, as well as student registration.
- Notifications – Except in New South Wales and Queensland, where they only handle reports forwarded to them, APHRA manages complaints and concerns raised regarding the health, efficiency, and conduct of individual health professionals on behalf of the National Boards. They collaborate with health complaints entities (HCEs) to ensure that the proper organization is in charge of dealing with community issues regarding health practitioners.
- Compliance – APHRA monitors and checks registered health practitioners to ensure that they are following the Board’s rules.
- Accreditation – They collaborate with accreditation authorities and committees to ensure that graduate students are qualified and professional enough to qualify for health practitioner registration.
APHRA publishes a national Register of Practitioners so that the public has access to relevant information about particular health practitioners.
The Independent Higher Education Association (IHEA) represents the bulk of Australia’s licensed and certified independent institute of higher educations.
More than 130,000 students and 120 universities make up Australia’s independent higher education sector, with independent providers approved to offer courses across the entire AQF spectrum (diplomas up to doctorates).
Higher education institutions that are members of the IHEA educate domestic and foreign students in undergraduate and postgraduate programs. Major independent institutions, colleges, business schools, niche providers, and professional associations with for-profit and non-profit business models make up their varied membership . IHEA members have a variety of accredited higher education degrees, ranging from bachelor’s degrees to doctoral degrees.
The Tertiary Education Quality Standards Agency, the Australian government’s regulator of all universities and institute of higher educations, have registered and accredited all members. For Australian independent providers, membership in the IHEA is a mark of excellence.
The IHEA’s Code of Good Practice, which is based on regulatory enforcement, sound governance, fair business models, quality teaching, and student participation, is a requirement for membership.
Through the power of collaboration, HEPP-QN aims to promote an improved private-provider efficiency footprint in the Australian market. The network was officially unveiled on April 21, 2015, at the Avondale Sydney campus in Wahroonga, with 17 of the 35 affiliate institutions in participation.
They are primarily concerned with assisting one another in the development and implementation of quality assurance frameworks through their higher education operations. Their goal is to be proactive and attentive in dealing with the industry’s urgent and critical issues.

The Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) is a simple, easy-to-read document that contains information about a student’s higher education qualification, the university where the qualification was obtained, and the Australian higher education system.
In consultation with the higher education community, guidelines for presenting an AHEGS were established to provide information to organizations planning to adopt the AHEGS. The purpose, relationship to other documents, content and style, issuing and authentication of the AHEGS are all defined in these guidelines.
Advance HE is a member-led, sector-owned charity that partners with universities and higher education around the world to enhance the quality of higher education for faculty, students, and community.
Their strategic priorities to improve faith and trust in higher education, overcome systemic inequalities, and advance education to meet the changing demands of students and community complement their members’ and the HE sector’s initiatives.
Through their equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) mission, they are specialists in higher education, with a special emphasis on improving teaching and learning, effective governance, leadership creation, and addressing inequality. Professional development programs and activities, fellowships, awards, student assessments, strategic transformation and advisory options, and membership are all forms they help (including accreditation of teaching and learning, equality charters, research, knowledge and resources).
They collaborate with their global network of associates and partners, as well as individuals, providers, and systems around the world, to identify contexts and problems and provide solutions, drawing on their experience and exchanging best practices.
The broad discipline-free nomenclature used in the AQF to classify each category of AQF certification, such as Senior Secondary Certificate of Education, Certificate III, and Bachelor Degree, is alluded to as qualification type.
The conditions for AQF qualifications are included in each AQF certification form, such as:
- the levels criteria
- the qualification type descriptor
- information about the responsibilities of qualification developers, accrediting authorities and issuing organisations
The main reasons for having AQF certificates are to ensure national recognition and consistency, as well as a common understanding of what each certification entails across Australia.
The Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) are a range of government-backed surveys that span the whole student life cycle, from enrolment to jobs. QILT provides reliable, globally consistent output data for Australian higher education, allowing for quality enhancement to be pursued.
The Australian Government’s Department of Education, Skills and Jobs funds QILT.
From the perspective of current students and new graduates, the ComparED website provides potential students with appropriate and accessible knowledge about Australian institutions of higher education. The information on the website is based on survey findings from students who voluntarily provided feedback on their overall experiences during their higher education studies, as well as the outcomes of their career opportunities, such as starting salary. The content on this website is designed to assist consumers in making well-informed decisions about their future educational opportunities.
ComparED was designed to allow users to compare various organizations and research areas using a variety of performance metrics gathered from QILT surveys. The ComparED portal is driven by the QILT survey data and is financed by the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Jobs.
