Accreditation of a Course of Study - Australian Government

Description

You must apply for accreditation of courses of study if you are a registered higher education provider.

Registered higher education providers must offer courses of study to their students that have been accredited by either:

  • The Agency; or
  • Themselves (if they are a self-accrediting authority).

A registered higher education provider can apply for a self-accrediting authority which effectively allows them to accredit new courses as they develop them.
