Background to Decision
The National Institute of Dramatic Art submitted an application for accreditation of two courses of study under Part 4 of the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 ('the TEQSA Act'). Subsection 45(4) of the TEQSA Act requires a registered higher education provider who is not authorised to self-accredit the course of study to apply to TEQSA for accreditation. Subsection 49(6) enables TEQSA to grant accreditation of a course of study for a period not exceeding seven years.
Main Reasons for the Decision
TEQSA has determined that the two higher education courses of study submitted by the National Institute of Dramatic Art for accreditation comply with the Provider Course Accreditation Standards. The course accreditation covers delivery at all sites in Australia.
