The Government today confirmed its commitment to reduce regulation, reporting and red tape across Australia’s higher education sector.

Minister for Education Christopher Pyne said he was determined to implement recommendations from the Review of Higher Education Regulation.

“I have today directed the Chief Executive Officer of the Tertiary Education Quality Standards Agency (TEQSA) to simplify the paperwork and deregulate,” Mr Pyne said.

“This includes improving how TEQSA consults with universities and more broadly across the sector.

“The findings of the review confirm my opinion that deregulation can happen across the sector without compromising quality standards.”
