Course accreditation with ASQA
(Video: 2.40 mins)
How long will it take to get my course accredited?
We process applications in line with our service standards. This means, once you have submitted your course (Step 3) we aim to accredit it within 6 months.
Developing your course so it meets the Standards and AQF helps you move through the process as quickly as possible.
You can use a specialist consultant to help create your course.
ASQA cannot recommend a consultant.
Industry bodies such as Velg and the Independent Tertiary Education Council Australia publish lists that may help you find a consultant.
