ASQA is the national regulator for Australia's vocational education and training (VET) sector. ASQA is an impartial government agency.
This means that ASQA cannot:
- give you advice about which course to study
- help you choose which provider to study with, or
- provide information about studying in Australia or applying for VET courses.
Before you sign up for a VET course, it's important to understand exactly what you are committing to, what it will cost and what the course will deliver.
