Quality and Standards

Quality and Standards


Course reviews

We work with key staff on the design and coordination of cyclical reviews of courses. We also assist in the design and coordination of annual processes and resources for Course Performance Reporting (log-in required) and (now archived) Faculty Academic Reports. 

Higher Education Standards Panel

HESP is an expert advisory body established under the TEQSA Act 2011. The Panel reviewed the Threshold Standards in 2014, and Standards is working with the university community in 2015 to start implementing the new Standards. 

IRU ACP calibration

This project links with Learning and Teaching benchmarking through comparisons of learning outcomes and promoting good practice. It is an IRU-led project aimed at developing an effective way of meeting course accreditation standards. 

Organisational unit and thematic reviews

We coordinate review processes, in consultation with the area under review. Further details are in the Review policy and procedures document.
Key details for individual reviews conducted to date can be found at Review Details

Professional accreditation

We keep a schedule of all University professional accreditations of courses and a register of all accreditation reports, responses, action plans, progress reports and certifications. 

Quality Enhancement Framework

We develop and promote an overarching framework for quality assurance and enhancement across all University operations. Staff can apply the Quality Enhancement Framework model to any business activity. 


We work with the Academy and the Deputy Vice Chancellor Academic (Academic and Student Life) to help ensure continued alignment with the requirements of the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) and the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).
