Bachelor of Dramatic Art (Staging): Re-accreditation (Teach-out) 15 December 2014
Renewal of course accreditation in teach out mode
Report on renewal of accreditation of six higher education courses of study in teach out mode offered by The National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA)
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 The National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) until 31 December 2017:
- Bachelor of Dramatic Art (Acting);
- Bachelor of Dramatic Art (Costume);
- Bachelor of Dramatic Art (Design);
- Bachelor of Dramatic Art (Production);
- Bachelor of Dramatic Art (Properties); and
- Bachelor of Dramatic Art (Staging).
Background to Decision
NIDA submitted an application for renewal of accreditation of six 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 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 six higher education courses of study submitted by NIDA for accreditation comply with the Provider Course Accreditation Standards. The course accreditation covers delivery at all Australian sites.
