Bachelor of Viticulture and Winemaking: Re-accreditation 27 Feb 2014

Renewal of course accreditation in teach out mode

Report on renewal of accreditation of four higher education courses of study in teach out mode offered by Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE

 

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 courses of study in teach out mode offered by Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE for a period of two years until 28 February, 2016:

  • Bachelor of Viticulture and Winemaking
  • Associate Degree of Viticulture and Winemaking
  • Bachelor of Aquaculture and Environmental Management
  • Associate Degree of Aquaculture and Environmental Management

Background to Decision

Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE submitted an application for renewal of accreditation of four courses 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 courses and/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 these courses. 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 four higher education courses of study submitted by Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE for accreditation comply with the Provider Course Accreditation Standards. The course accreditation covers delivery at all Australian sites.
