Bachelor of Psychology (Hons): Impose Condition 27 July 2021
Course accreditation condition
Report on imposition of condition of two higher education courses of study offered by ISN Psychology Pty Ltd
On 27 July 2021 a delegate of TEQSA imposed, under section 53 of the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 (TEQSA Act), Condition 1 imposed on the accreditation of the following courses offered by by ISN Psychology Pty Ltd:
- Bachelor of Psychological Science
- Bachelor of Psychology (Honours)
Condition 1: ISN Psychology Pty Ltd must not offer or enrol students in the Bachelor of Psychological Science or Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) until ISN Psychology Pty Ltd has provided TEQSA with evidence that the courses are accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council.
Main reasons for the decision
TEQSA made this decision on the basis that the courses no longer meet the requirements of Standard 3.1.5 of the Higher Education Standards Framework (Threshold Standards) 2021 which requires: "Where professional accreditation of a course of study is required for graduates to be eligible to practise, the course of study is accredited and continues to be accredited by the relevant professional body".
TEQSA acknowledges that ISN made a decision to discontinue the above mentioned courses and advised the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) of its decision. Consequentially APAC withdrew the professional accreditation of these courses.
