SINGAPORE : Singapore’s Council for Private Education (CPE) signed a Memorandum of Co—operation (MOC) with Australia’s Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency on 28 February in Canberra, Australia.
Both sides aim to enhance regulation and quality assurance to improve the quality of private education institutions (PEIs) in Singapore and higher education in Australia.
Over the next three years, they will exchange information and draw on each other’s expertise and experiences.
CPE, which is a statutory board that regulates the industry, said Australian universities have a significant presence in Singapore’s private education industry.
They offer the most number of external degree programmes in Singapore.
In 2011, there were 23 Australian universities collaborating with local PEIs, offering over 400 external degree programmes.
