AUQA audits of UniSA
The Australian Universities Quality Agency (AUQA) is the principal national quality assurance agency in higher education, with responsibility for quality audits of higher education institutions and accreditation authorities, reporting on performance and outcomes, assisting in quality enhancement, advising on quality assurance; and liaising internationally with quality agencies in other jurisdictions, for the benefit of Australian higher education.
AUQA quality audits of self-accrediting institutions are held approximately once every five years and are based on both a self-assessment and a site visit. AUQA makes use of panels of experts with substantial senior academic and administrative experience in higher education (in Australia and abroad) to undertake the audits.
