Definition of higher education level study

In SATAC, the term ‘higher education level’ means study at diploma level or above at a university or equivalent (e.g. a college of advanced education, institute of technology, or institute of higher education). It also includes bachelor degree courses studied at TAFE or other registered training organisations.

Higher education courses must have been listed by the Tertiary Education Quality Standards Agency (TEQSA) National Register, and accredited at the time of study.

In all cases in this section, ‘one year’ in relation to length of higher education level study means the equivalent of one full-time year, e.g. 80 credit points at Charles Darwin University; 36 units at Flinders University or University of South Australia; 24 points at the University of Adelaide; 48 points at CQUniversity Australia and Tabor; 32 points at Torrens University Australia; or the interstate equivalent.
