From March 18th to March 20th 2019, three of HEEACT’s staff participated in the Staff Exchange Program in which the both HEEACT and TEQSA staff had the opportunities to share about the higher education systems in Taiwan and Australia.
During the Staff Exchange Program, HEEACT staff visited TEQSA’s offices and were part of a series of workshop sessions in which they learned about TEQSA current operations and processes related to quality assurance and the regulation of the Australian Higher education system and its relationship with the higher education providers.
