Background to Decision
Wesley Institute submitted an application for renewal of accreditation of seven courses of study in teach out mode under Part 4 of the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 ('the TEQSA Act'). The purpose of this decision is to facilitate the completion of studies by students enrolled in the courses or the transition of students into other equivalent courses offered by the provider or other higher education providers. 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 56(4) enables TEQSA to renew accreditation of a course of study for a period not exceeding seven years.
Main Reasons for the Decision
TEQSA has determined that the seven higher education course of study submitted by Wesley Institute for accreditation comply with the Provider Course Accreditation Standards. The course accreditation covers delivery in Sydney.
