A New Age Dawning? Australia's New Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Moves towards "Third Stage" Internationalisation
Observatory on Borderless Higher Education
Australia's Minister for Education, Employment and Workplace Relations recently launched a new agency whose primary focus is the protection of the country's tertiary education system. The government is developing the new AUD$57 million (approximately US$51 million) agency, the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA), in response to the recommendations listed in the 2008 Bradley Review of Australian Higher Education. According to the review, there is a need to implement a "third phase" of internationalisation characterised by a more holistic approach that includes better security for students, both domestic and international. With countries such as Germany similarly moving towards the adoption of more student-centric protocols, including those focused on quality of experience, student security is set to dominate strategic policy in the immediate future. What is TEQSA, and which factors are contributing to its development? Why is student security becoming an important policy consideration in a growing number of countries across the world?
