Quality at UC

What is Quality at the University of Canberra?

Quality and Improvement are the mechanisms by which the University of Canberra assures the quality of education, research and administration are provided and the process by which standards are both maintained and enhanced.

The national body responsible for the oversight of quality in Higher Education is the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA).  This agency evaluates higher education providers against the Higher Education Standards Framework (Threshold Standards), which informs the University's quality processes.  Periodically, TEQSA carries out a review of an institution's ability to maintain standards and manage the quality of its operations. In 2015, TEQSA advised that the UC had received renewal of  registration for the maximum period of seven years, without conditions.

The University of Canberra applies a quality improvement approach of Plan, Implement, Evaluate, Improve (PIEI) to allow for continuous improvement and compliance across all areas of the university.  The University has developed an internal Quality and Standards Framework to meet required standards and to ensure high quality outcomes for students and stakeholders of research, engagement and other academic activities. This Quality and Standards Framework demonstrates our commitment to continuous improvement, as divided into three broad areas: Student, Staff, Institution.
