As Australia moves to an approach to quality assurance that is framed around regulation and risk, it is timely to reflect on the merits of external quality audit supported by a fitness-for-purpose approach. This chapter explores the proposition that external review has made a difference in enhancing the higher education student experience in Australia in terms of the scope, transparency and style of quality-enhancement activities adopted by higher education providers in Australia. © 2013 Woodhead Publishing Limited All rights reserved.
