After a Friday meeting the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency has reduced its registration conditions on Charles Sturt University
The agency has renewed CSU registration for four years (seven is the norm), conditional on the university meeting governance and quality control requirements. But TEQSA has now lifted its fifth condition, which banned CSU enrolling its students in study centres managed for it by partner Study Group Australia. The ban applied until TEQSA was satisfied, “that the university has implemented controls to ensure academic integrity” at study centres run for it by SGA.
CSU says that it has demonstrated work accomplished and underway to managing risk and strengthening academic integrity at study centres. “We appreciate the expedited approach to revoking this condition based on the evidence and improvements we have in train, CSU said Saturday.
This is a win for CSU. While five other, largely governance and quality control monitoring conditions are still in place, the SGA partnership is live.
