The process of seeking TEQSA (Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency) registration can be a complex and time-consuming process for higher education institutions in Australia. One of the key issues that institutions face is the lack of support and resources available to help them navigate the process.
One of the main challenges is that the TEQSA has very specific requirements for the types of evidence and documentation that must be provided as part of the registration process. This can be difficult for institutions to understand and comply with, especially if they are unfamiliar with the process or do not have the necessary expertise in-house.
Another issue is that the TEQSA often lacks transparency in its decision-making processes, which can make it difficult for institutions to understand why their registration application has been approved or rejected, and what they can do to improve their chances of success in the future.
To address these issues, it would be beneficial for the TEQSA to provide more support and resources for institutions seeking registration. This could include clearer guidelines and expectations for institutions, as well as more transparent decision-making processes and greater availability of support and guidance throughout the process. By providing more support and resources, the TEQSA can help to ensure that higher education institutions are able to successfully navigate the registration process and maintain compliance with relevant regulations.
