The Tertiary Collection of Student Information or TCSI (pronounced 'taxi') is a joint project between the Department of Education, Skills and Employment (department) and Services Australia to transform how student information is collected.
Any training providers that report data through the HEPCAT system will eventually be required to use the new TCSI system to report data to the Australian Government. This includes HELP providers, VSL providers and higher education providers reporting the TEQSA PIR collection.
For HEIMSHELP based resources on what to expect from the reporting requirements, the following options are currently available online:
- Higher education student information
- Higher education staff information
- University apps and offers
- VET Student Loans
There is also a collection of FAQs available on the government-provided TCSI Support website, which can be viewed at the following link:
What does this mean for me as a System User?
Easy! Your User environment will be updated to allow reporting via the established TCSI requirements.
This will be accompanied by a suite of new Help Centre documentation within the established Transforming the Collection of Student Information (TCSI) page to assist with learning how to get started and work towards making these submissions.
Keep an eye out for further communications on the implementation process!
