Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine) (formerly B Health Science (Nutritional Medicine)): Re-accreditation 23 Apr 2015

Renewal of course accreditation

Report on renewal of accreditation of three higher education courses of study offered by Australian College of Natural Medicine Pty Ltd

 

A delegate of TEQSA has renewed the accreditation, under section 56 of the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 (the TEQSA Act), of the following higher education courses of study offered by Australian College of Natural Medicine Pty Ltd (ACNM) for a period of seven years until 23 April 2022:

  • Bachelor of Health Science (Myotherapy)
  • Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine)
  • Bachelor of Health Science (Western Herbal Medicine)

TEQSA has, under subsection 53(1) of the TEQSA Act, imposed one condition on the accreditation of the Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine) course of study.

Condition:

The Australian College of Natural Medicine Pty Ltd must within 30 days of the Notice of Decision, provide to TEQSA course marketing and information materials for the Bachelor of Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine) that clearly state that graduating students will not meet the professional registration requirements to practise as a dietitian.

The course accreditation covers delivery at all Australian sites.

Main Reasons for the Decision

TEQSA considers that the decision to apply a condition to ACNM's application for accreditation of one of the courses of study is consistent with the basic principles for regulation in Part 2 of the TEQSA Act, as ACNM is at risk of not complying with meeting Provider Course Accreditation Standard 1.2 relating to the course and award title.
