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 offered by Canberra Institute of Technology for a period of seven years until 28 November 2020:
- Bachelor of Forensic Science (Crime Scene Examination)

Background to Decision
Canberra Institute of Technology submitted an application for renewal of accreditation of two courses of study under Part 4 of the TEQSA Act. 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 two higher education courses of study submitted by Canberra Institute of Technology for accreditation comply with the Provider Course Accreditation and Qualification Standards. The course accreditation covers delivery at all Australian sites.
