Proclamation confirms new Higher Education Threshold Standards to commence on 1 July 2021

The Minister for Education and Youth, the Hon Alan Tudge MP, recently made a new Higher Education Threshold Standards legislative instrument, which will replace the previous 2015 instrument when it comes into effect on 1 July 2021.

The Threshold Standards set out the minimum requirements that a higher education provider must meet and continue to meet to be registered to operate in Australia. More information about the 2021 Threshold Standards is available.

On 10 June 2021 the Governor-General signed a Proclamation that sets the commencement date for the new Threshold Standards as 1 July 2021.
