Bachelor of Arts: Accreditation 29 June 2017
Report on accreditation of a higher education course of study offered by Sheridan College Inc
A delegate of TEQSA has accredited, under section 49 of the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 (the TEQSA Act), the following higher education course of study offered by Sheridan College for a period of four years until 29 June 2021:
- Bachelor of Arts
Main reasons for decision
TEQSA has determined that the higher education course of study submitted by Sheridan College for accreditation complies with the Provider Course Accreditation Standards and arrangements for delivery at all Australian sites.
TEQSA considers that the decision to accredit the course of study for a period of four years is consistent with the basic principles for regulation in Part 2 of the TEQSA Act. The shortened accreditation period provides an appropriate timeframe for TEQSA to review the course to ensure on-going compliance with the Threshold Standards, given that this will be the first AQF level 7 course delivered by Sheridan College, and risks identified in relation to:
a) PCAS 2.1 in relation to resourcing; and
b) PCAS 2.2 in relation to access to library and electronic resources.
