A message from the Director

Welcome to the 10th edition of E-news. This edition will provide you with information on the findings of the AUQA higher education audit.

The VRQA held its contractors’ seminar on Wednesday 9 March. Presentation slides from the seminar are included in this edition.

I also draw your attention to draft legislation to establish the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) which has been released by the Federal Minister for public comment.

We welcome any feedback from you on this edition and encourage you to email us your suggestions for future article topics.
