TEQSA to selectively extend accreditation

The Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency will extend provider registration and course accreditation for institutions with an “established track record of low-risk, high quality delivery” for up to seven years. CMM understands that four universities and one private provider will benefit in the first instance, with more to follow over the next year to 18 months. The order flows from the sequence in which the agency first assessed institutions. Cynics suggest that this might be a form of compensation for the budget introduction of cost-recovery for the TEQSA services but this is said to be not so. Word is, that TEQSA is still working on what it will charge for assessing institutions.
