Universities Australia welcomes the opportunity to make a submission to the Department of Education’s consultation on the proposed Draft National Statement Commitment for the Transforming Education Summit.

On 10 November, UA made a short submission made by UA to TEQSA’s consultation on its draft compliance guides on scholarship, work-integrated learning and admissions (coursework). These guides are updated and simplified versions of publications previously known as TEQSA Guidance Notes. Although UA supports streamlining and simplification of these publications, we have expressed concern that the proposed title of ‘compliance guides’ may not accurately reflect the purpose and status of the documents, and have accordingly suggested some minor revisions.
