Report on renewal of accreditation of three higher education courses of study offered by The MIECAT Institute Inc. (MIECAT)
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 The MIECAT Institute Inc. (MIECAT) for a period of seven years until 22 January 2022:
- Professional Doctorate in Therapeutic Arts Practice
- Masters in Therapeutic Arts Practice
- Graduate Diploma in Therapeutic Arts Practice
Background to Decision
MIECAT submitted an application for renewal of accreditation of three 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 three higher education courses of study submitted by MIECAT for accreditation comply with the Provider Course Accreditation Standards. The course accreditations cover delivery at the provider's Australian site.
