Renewal of course accreditation in teach out mode

Report on the renewal of accreditation of one higher education course of study in teach out mode offered by Insearch Limited

TEQSA has determined, under Section 56 of the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 (the TEQSA Act), to renew accreditation of the following higher education course of study in teach out mode offered by Insearch Limited for a period of six months until 30 December 2015:

  • Diploma of Communication (Public Relations)

Background to Decision

Insearch Limited submitted an application for renewal of accreditation of one course of study in teach out mode under Part 4 of the TEQSA Act. The purpose of this decision is to facilitate the completion of studies by students enrolled in the course or the transition of students into other equivalent courses offered by the provider or other higher education providers. This also means that no further enrolments are permitted into this course.

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 Diploma of Communication (Public Relations) submitted by Insearch Limited for accreditation complies with the Provider Course Accreditation Standards.

Insearch Limited has demonstrated to TEQSA that it meets the Threshold Standards.

The course accreditation covers delivery at all Australian sites.
