IHEA CRICOS Cost Recovery Submission

As the leading peak body representing Australia's quality independent higher education providers, IHEA advocates for a regulatory model which allows providers to focus on course quality and student success without undue reporting and regulatory burdens.

As part of the government’s Cost Recovery program, the Department of Education, Skills and Employment recently released its consultation paper on its proposed cost recovery model for CRICOS.  TEQSA and ASQA will release their own cost recovery regimes for CRICOS related activity at a later date.
