9 A. INTRODUCTION About this Guide This Application Guide provides assistance to applicants applying to the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) for one of the following reasons: 1. to change the category in which the higher education provider is currently registered by TEQSA from higher education provider to Australian University College (refer to Part 1 of this Guide and to the Application Form Application for Change of Provider Category to Australian University College or Registration as an Australian University College ) 2. to change the category in which the higher education provider is currently registered by TEQSA from Australian University College to Australian University (refer to Part 2 of this Guide and to the Application Form Application for Change of Provider Category to Australian University ) 3. to change the category in which the higher education provider is currently registered by TEQSA from Australian University College to Australian University of Specialisation (refer to Part 3 of this Guide and to the Application Form Application for Change of Provider Category to Australian University of Specialisation ) 4. to change the category in which a higher education provider with self-accrediting authority is currently registered by TEQSA from Higher Education Provider to Australian University (refer to Part 2 of this Guide and to the Application Form Application for Change of Provider Category to Australian University ) 5. to change the category in which the higher education provider is currently registered by TEQSA from Higher Education Provider to Australian University of Specialisation (refer to Part 3 of this Guide and to the Application Form Application for Change of Provider Category to Australian University to Australian University ) 6. to seek registration by TEQSA for the first time as a higher education provider in the category of Australian University College (refer to Part 1 of this Guide and to the Application Form Application for Change of Provider Category to Australian University College or Registration as an Australian University College ). All provider categories are detailed in the Provider Category Standards, available at: gov.au/details/f2012l00003/download. This Guide explains the information required in each section of the relevant Application Form. The relevant Application Form refers to one of the three application forms noted above. This Guide provides examples of the types of evidence that might be provided, in addition to the required evidence, to demonstrate that the applicant meets the relevant Threshold Standards, including the Provider Category Standards. TEQSA acknowledges that each applicant will use customised approaches, structures and processes to meet the standards, and therefore that the type of evidence available to demonstrate compliance will differ across applicants. A broad range of examples is provided to assist applicants to determine what might constitute appropriate kinds of evidence. The Guide also contains a Glossary of Terms relevant to the Threshold Standards and to the evidence TEQSA requires to be included as part of an application. Eligibility to apply Existing providers changing a Provider Category There is no requirement for a provider currently registered with TEQSA to change provider category. All providers registered with TEQSA become registered higher education providers in accordance with the Tertiary Education and Quality Standards Agency Act 2011 ( the TEQSA Act ). Some providers with the necessary breadth and depth of discipline area knowledge and expertise, and with robust and highly effective quality assurance processes, may apply to TEQSA for self-accrediting authority for one or more courses of study, across one or more disciplines in which they operate, while maintaining registration as a higher education provider. The Application Form Application for Self-accrediting Authority should be used for this purpose, and is available at: gov.au/self-accrediting-authority. An existing higher education provider that has been authorised for at least the last five years to self-accredit at least 85 per cent of its total courses of study in one or two broad fields of study including Masters Degrees (Research) and Doctoral Degrees (Research) in these broad fields of study may apply to TEQSA to change its category of registration to Australian University of Specialisation. TEQSA assesses this requirement against the Broad Fields of Education as defined by the Australian Standard Classification of Education (ASCED). Part 3 of this Guide refers to the Application Form Application for Change of Provider Category to Australian University of Specialisation, which should be used for this purpose. 7

10 A provider that has been authorised for at least the last five years to self-accredit at least 85 per cent of its total course of study including Masters Degrees (Research) and Doctoral Degrees (Research) in at least three broad fields of study may apply to TEQSA to change its category of registration to Australian University. TEQSA assesses this requirement against the Broad Fields of Education as defined by the Australian Standard Classification of Education (ASCED). ASCED is a classification of courses, specialisations, and units of study with the same or similar vocational emphasis or principal subject matter in the course of study. Part 2 of this Guide refers to the Application Form Application for Change of Provider Category to Australian University, which should be used for this purpose. Providers with or without existing self-accrediting authority may apply to TEQSA to change their category of registration to Australian University College. The Australian University College Provider Category Standards require applicants to demonstrate realistic and achievable plans to meet, within a five year period, all the criteria for the Australian University category, or for the Australian University of Specialisation category. The Australian University College provider category is a pathway to achieving registration in the Australian University or Australian University of Specialisation category. Such providers will have a strong and successful history of higher education operations over a sustained period. If TEQSA approves registration in the Australian University College category, the provider will be authorised to self-accredit all of its courses of study. Part 1 of this Guide refers to the Application Form Application for Change of Provider Category to Australian University College, which should be used for this purpose. The Australian University College Provider Category Standard 3.1 requires that a provider that is registered in the category of Australian University College has realistic and achievable plans to meet, within five years of its approval to use the title Australian University College, all criteria for the Provider Category Standards of Australian University or Australian University of Specialisation. Such providers should apply to TEQSA within the timeframe specified by TEQSA using either: z the Application Form Application for Change of Provider Category to Australian University, or z the Application Form Application for Change of Provider Category to Australian University of Specialisation. TEQSA considers that there is nothing preventing a provider remaining in the Australian University College category beyond the five year period specified in Section 3.1 of the Provider Category Standards, subject to TEQSA s general power under section 38 of the TEQSA Act to change the category in which a provider is registered. TEQSA may change a provider s category under section 38 of the TEQSA Act, either unilaterally or on application by the provider. Initial registration in a particular provider category In accordance with section 25 of the TEQSA Act, all providers registered by TEQSA must offer at least one accredited course of study. Applicants registered with TEQSA for the first time in the Australian University College category will be required to provide to TEQSA a plan confirming when accredited courses of study (as required by Section 3.2 of the Provider Category Standards) will be offered and teaching commenced. Regulated entities that are not currently registered by TEQSA as a registered higher education provider may apply to TEQSA for registration in one of the following four categories: z registration in the category of higher education provider is sought by completing the Application Form Application for Registration as a Higher Education Provider. This Application Form, and the accompanying Application Guide, are available at: To be registered in this category, TEQSA requires that at least one accredited course of study be offered. A completed Application Form Application for Accreditation of a Higher Education Course of Study (AQF Qualification) must accompany the registration application. This Application Form, and the accompanying Application Guide, are available at: course-accreditation#initialaccreditation z registration in the category of Australian University College is sought by completing the Application Form Application for Change of Provider Category to Australian University College or Registration as an Australian University College. Section 1 of this Guide must be referred to when completing this Application Form z registration in the category of Overseas University or Overseas University of Specialisation is sought by completing either the Application Form Application for Registration as an Overseas University, or the Application Form Application for Registration as an Overseas University of Specialisation. Both of these application forms, and the accompanying Application Guide, are available at: teqsa.gov.au/registration-and-re-registration. TEQSA s approach Existing providers changing a Provider Category Section 38 of the TEQSA Act provides that a registered higher education provider may apply to TEQSA to change the category in which the provider is registered. On its own initiative, TEQSA may also change the category in which a provider is registered. In accordance with subsection 38(2) of the TEQSA Act, TEQSA must have regard to the Threshold Standards 8

11 when determining whether to change the category in which an existing provider is registered. TEQSA will evaluate each application for change of provider category in accordance with relevant provisions of: z the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 ( the TEQSA Act ), available at: comlaw.gov.au/details/c2011c00582, and z the Threshold Standards (as defined by the TEQSA Act), which include the Provider Registration Standards, the Provider Category Standards, the Provider Course Accreditation Standards, and the Qualification Standards, available at: comlaw.gov.au/details/f2012l00003/download. As noted below, TEQSA seeks to streamline regulatory processes as far as is practicable. Providers are encouraged to apply, where possible, for renewal of registration at the same time as applying for a change of provider category in order to ensure that TEQSA has current provider information against all Threshold Standards. Initial registration in the category of Australian University College Section 18 of the TEQSA Act provides that a regulated entity (that is: a constitutional corporation; or a corporation established by or under a law of the Commonwealth or territory; or a person who conducts activities in a territory) may apply to TEQSA for registration within a particular category. In order to be registered, TEQSA must be satisfied that the applicant meets the Threshold Standards (as defined by the TEQSA Act). TEQSA will assess the application against the requirements of: z the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 ( the TEQSA Act ), available at comlaw.gov.au/details/c2011c00582, and z the Threshold Standards (as defined by the TEQSA Act), which include the Provider Registration Standards, the Provider Category Standards, the Provider Course Accreditation Standards, and the Qualification Standards, available at: comlaw.gov.au/details/f2012l00003/download. Basic regulatory principles The three basic regulatory principles set out in Part 2 of the TEQSA Act have been applied by TEQSA in developing the requirements outlined in each Application Form, and will be used in assessing applications. These are: z the principle of regulatory necessity z the principle of proportionate regulation, and z the principle of reflecting risk. Applying the principle of regulatory necessity, each section of the relevant Application Form is based on requirements set out in the applicable section of the Threshold Standards, in particular those relating to the Provider Category Standards and, for applicants seeking registration for the first time with TEQSA, the Provider Registration Standards. TEQSA will assess applications using an integrative approach that recognises interdependencies across the standards and their components. TEQSA requires applicants to submit a set of documents as required evidence. An applicant then has discretion to select other additional evidence most relevant to their higher education operations. This evidence may be provided to TEQSA at the time of application, or be made available to TEQSA on request. Where an applicant submits evidence that is applicable to one or more standards, it is not necessary to provide the same evidence more than once. The relevant Application Form provides for cross-referencing of common information requirements where more than one application is submitted, or where information is applicable to one or more standards. Where appropriate, applicants should cross-reference the evidence they provide in one of two ways: z noting that the evidence also demonstrates how the applicant meets one or other of the other Threshold Standards referred to in another section of the Application Form, or z noting that the supporting evidence for a particular standard is provided in another application submitted to TEQSA at the same time. Applying the principle of proportionate regulation, TEQSA will determine the issues relevant for focus during the substantive assessment process. The substantive assessment process will be tailored to the circumstances of each applicant and the relevant provider category. Applying the principle of reflecting risk, TEQSA will consider the risks: a. of the applicant not meeting relevant Threshold Standards, including the applicable Provider Category Standards, and, for applicants seeking registration for the first time with TEQSA, the Provider Registration Standards b. to institutional and sector reputational damage. For applicants already registered by TEQSA as a higher education provider, TEQSA will take into account the provider s history and risk profile, and its success at mitigating identified risks, when determining the assessment process required to assess compliance with the relevant Provider Category Standards. It is the applicant s responsibility to submit sufficient evidence to show that it has appropriate arrangements in place and is achieving outcomes 9
