John Paul II Institute for Marriage and Family, Melbourne: Withdraw registration 19 June 2019

Withdrawal of registration

Report on application to withdraw registration by the John Paul II Institute for Marriage and Family

TEQSA has determined, under section 43 of the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 (TEQSA Act), to grant the application from the John Paul II Institute for Marriage and Family to withdraw its registration as a Higher Education Provider, with effect from 30 June 2019.

Main reasons for the decision

The reason for the withdrawal is the closure of the Institute. The Institute's Governing Council, mindful of projected trends in sustainability, decided that the Institute would cease operating on 31 December 2018.

TEQSA is satisfied the Institute has ensured appropriate teach out arrangements prior to the Melbourne campus closing. Students were appropriately notified and supported by the Institute to either complete their courses or transfer into equivalent courses at another higher education provider or students had resolved not to complete an award. All students eligible to complete higher education awards have graduated from the Institute.

In addition, TEQSA is satisfied there are appropriate arrangements for the retention of student records and replacement certification, which will be managed by the Catholic Theological College who can be contacted via:
