Government Registration & Accreditation

The Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA ), which is part of the federal (Commonwealth) government of Australia, registers all Australian institutions, including government and private universities, Higher Education Providers (private colleges) that offer courses at the higher education (tertiary level) and accredits their courses for delivery in Australia and/or offshore locations. TEQSA's registration and accreditation processes seek to ensure that higher education courses offered in Australia are only conducted by approved educational institutions, and that  their courses are:

  • Equivalent in standard to a qualification of that level in a similar field in other Australian higher education institutions, including universities
  • Appropriate to the qualification conferred
  • Delivered in an appropriate way
  • Suitable for local and, where appropriate, international students

UBSS' courses are listed on the TEQSA Register of approved courses and providers (under Group Colleges Australia, its parent company).

NB: As of January 2012, the Australian governments' Tertiary Education Quality & Standards Agency (TEQSA) recognised UBSS as a Higher Education provider with Non Self-Accrediting status. This function was overseen until December 2011 by the NSW Department of Education & Training.
