University College London's submission to TEQSA Reform and Continuous Improvement process

4 December 2013

4 December 2013

University College London (UCL) has provided a submission to the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) Reform and Continuous Improvement process.

UCL supports the current policy moves to substantially deregulate higher education in Australia.  UCL further supports Australian deregulation, increased policy making transparency, competition, policy equalisation and best practice models of higher education outcomes in teaching, research and organisational performance. 

UCL supports the Basic Principles for Regulation (Part 2 of the TEQSA Act) which says:

“TEQSA must comply with the following principles when exercising a power under this Act in relation to a regulated entity:

a. the principle of regulatory necessity;

b. the principle of reflecting risk;

c. the principle of proportionate regulation”.

UCL feels these three principles should be the underpinning ethos of TEQSA, not just its guidelines and operational regulations.  The principles must sit at the very heart of its culture and behaviour.  This must be more broadly a part of an overall shift from a culture of regulation to one of quality assurance and quality improvement.
