Planning and Integrity


The Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) is responsible for regulating higher education in Australia in accordance with the TEQSA Act 2011.

TEQSA registers and evaluates the performance of higher education providers. Deakin University has been registered by TEQSA as an Australian University on the National Register of Higher Education Providers until 30 June 2018. To maintain registration, Deakin and its courses must comply with the Higher Education Threshold Standards.

Deakin’s provider reference number is PRV12124.

Regulatory Risk Framework

In undertaking its regulatory responsibilities, TEQSA is guided by three principles:

  • Reflecting risk
  • Regulatory necessity
  • Proportionate regulation

A Regulatory Risk Framework available on the TEQSA website which sets out how TEQSA will identify and asses risk related to the ability to meet the Threshold Standards.

Material Changes

Deakin is required to notify TEQSA about material changes. These are changes that happen or are likely to happen that will either:

  • significantly affect our ability to meet the Threshold Standards or
  • require updating of our entry on the National Register of Higher Education Providers.

TEQSA must be notified no later than 14 days after the day that we would reasonably be expected to have become aware of the event.

Deakin's process for material change notifications is set out in guidelines (136 KB) approved by the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Planning and Integrity).
