Summary The issues paper considers the changed environment of our current approval and accreditation processes and also sets out a range of issues including: the specific combinations of teaching, scholarship and research which should define universities and other types of higher education institutions; whether there should be provision for 'specialist' institutions covering a narrow field of study in-depth rather than a wide range of disciplines; the role of private and for-profit institutions in the future and to what extent regulation of them should be different to regulation of public or not-for profit institutions; the scope to create pathways for non self-accrediting institutions to progress to self-accrediting or university status over time if desired; and the potential impacts of changing the current framework
