Conditions of Accreditation
- These accreditations are valid for students enrolling until the end of the year specified above for each course.
- Unless otherwise stated, this accreditation applies only to the above courses conducted at the above named campuses and locations. Where the course is offered elsewhere offshore, in other locations within Australia, by distance learning, by joint ventures or franchises, or any other variation, it will need to be the subject of a separate accreditation process to ensure that the Society’s requirements for accreditation, including resourcing are met under those arrangements. Where a course is accredited in external mode, it relates only to courses managed and delivered from the home campus of the institution and does not have any other third party involvement or delivered at an overseas location.
- The course is accredited as structured and with the content at the date of accreditation and on the basis of the information provided by the institution which must be current at the date of accreditation. The structure is as outlined in the attached report of the meeting. While the Society expects and accepts some variation over time (as the course develops), where that change requires approval by institution or faculty/school regulation, or otherwise results in a major structural change to the course, the details of such changes must be notified to the Society immediately. The Society will then consider the impact of the changes on the accreditation.
- The course is accredited as a whole course and the accreditation may not extend to when undertaken by students who are granted advanced standing, credit(s) or exemption(s) by the institution. A course undertaken by a student granted advanced standing, credit(s) or exemption(s) will only be regarded as the accredited course where, in the opinion of the Society, credit(s) or exemption(s) are given for equivalent subjects (particularly in terms of Information Technology content) taken at an equivalent educational level in an institution of equivalent academic standing.
