Registration and reports
Higher education registration
Higher education at Swinburne is registered by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) against the following standards:
- Higher Education Standards Framework — view Swinburne's registration on the TEQSA website.
- National Code of Practice for Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students 2018 (National Code), National standards for Foundation programs and National standards for ELICOS providers and courses — view Swinburne's registration on the Department of Education, Skills and Employment website.
Vocational education registrations
Swinburne’s Senior Secondary School Programs are regulated by the Victorian Regulations and Qualifications Authority (VRQA). Swinburne must meet the VRQA’s guidelines for non-school senior secondary school providers — minimum standards for registration to provide an accredited senior secondary course.
Swinburne must also implement and meet the requirements outlined in the current year’s Dual Sector VET Funding Contract issued by the Victorian Department of Education and Training.
Vocational education quality indicator reports
All Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) are required to provide to the Australian Skills Quality Authority an annual summary report of their performance against the learner engagement and employer satisfaction quality indicators. These reports are compiled from results of a survey of students and their employers. The students and employers surveyed are selected in accordance with national guidelines.
