Education (Tertiary Education and Other Matters) Amendment Bill

The Education (Tertiary Education and Other Matters) Amendment Bill amends the Education Act (1989) to help strengthen the tertiary education system.

The Bill supports better outcomes for students and the tertiary system by:

  • providing better tools to identify and manage questionable practices in tertiary education providers
  • imposing higher consequences where contract breaches or illegal activities are confirmed
  • supporting fair treatment of tertiary education providers, and
  • broadening protection arrangements for students studying across our system, to support student wellbeing.
