Advice on Admissions Transparency
Australian Government Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency
Admissions transparency means that prospective domestic undergraduate students can easily find good quality admissions information that allows them to compare courses and providers and make informed study choices. In October 2016 the Higher Education Standards Panel (HESP) made recommendations to achieve greater transparency in higher education admissions. A sector-led working group, the Admissions Transparency Implementation Working Group (IWG) was established to develop a practical response to the HESP's report. To implement admissions transparency providers should follow the joint higher education sector and Australian Government implementation plan and the updated common terminology and admission information sets (hereafter, referred to as 'the updated specification') available from the IWG's website by May 2018. Following the first phase of implementation of the Admissions Transparency Project, the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) conducted a formative evaluation by surveying all provider websites. Recognising that full implementation was not required in the first phase, they observed a number of things that might prevent prospective domestic undergraduate students from easily finding the information they need to make a decision about applying for a course. The advice presented herein is informed by their formative evaluation of the implementation of the Admissions Transparency Project and feedback from the IWG, providers, tertiary admission centres, students and peak bodies.
