DEEWR is releasing a draft of the Qualification Standards for public consultation. The Qualification Standards will be applied by TEQSA under the new quality assurance and regulatory arrangements for the higher education sector. The Qualification Standards, together with the Provider Standards, will form the Threshold Standards.

This draft has been prepared based on the Australian Qualifications Framework which was endorsed by the Ministerial Council for Tertiary Education and Employment in April 2011 and implemented in July 2011.
TEQSA will be established this year as an independent body with powers to regulate university and non-university higher education providers, monitor quality and set standards
