Course accreditation and renewal

In order to provide a higher education course, a regulated entity that does not have self-accrediting authority must have the course accredited under the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 (TEQSA Act).

Accreditation may be granted for up to seven years.

Prior to expiry of the accreditation period, the regulated entity can apply to TEQSA for renewal of accreditation. Initial accreditation and renewal of accreditation is granted if TEQSA is satisfied that the course of study meets the Provider Course Accreditation Standards.

Application documents are available on the forms and guides page. The application must be made in the approved form, include all information requested by TEQSA and must be accompanied by the approved fee and payment/invoice form.

It is essential that applicants read the Application Guide before completing the Application Form.
