Report on extension of course teach-out accreditation of two higher education courses of study offered by Melbourne Polytechnic

On 6 March 2019 TEQSA extended, under section 57A of the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 (TEQSA Act), the period of accreditation in teach-out for the following courses offered by Melbourne Polytechnic (refer Public Report of 28 June 2017), until 31 December 2020:

  • Associate Degree of Equine Studies
  • Bachelor of Equine Studies.

No new enrolments are permitted in the above courses.

TEQSA made the decision to extend the period of accreditation in teach-out on the basis that it is satisfied that course resourcing remains appropriate to support students to complete the courses during the extended teach-out period.
