Abstract
Australia’s current approach to quality assurance in Higher Education (essentially universities and private providers of university-level programs) has evolved over the past ten years. The essential components are: the Australian Qualifications Framework, the National Protocols for Higher Education Approval Processes, State and Territory accreditation and registration, internal self-monitoring and review and external quality audits. In particular, this paper outlines both the contributions of the Australian Universities Quality Agency (AUQA), and the challenges this body faces in contributing to the development of a quality assured system of Australian Higher Education.
