About nationally recognised accreditation
Accreditation, or recognised training sectors, means that a course meets the nationally recognised Vocational Education and Training (VET) Quality Framework or Higher Education (HE) framework. This leads to a nationally recognised Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) qualification. The AQF defines all nationally recognised accreditation and provides a single framework for all qualifications from senior secondary certification to Doctorate Degree.
Vocational Education and Training (VET)
Vocational Education Training (VET): VET courses can be offered by either private providers or by Technical and Further Education (TAFE). VET courses begin at entry level Certificate I to IV, Diploma, Advanced Diploma and Vocational Graduate Certificates and Diplomas.
Higher Education (HE)
Higher Education (HE): HE courses are offered primarily by Universities or private providers (approved by the HE state authority and deliver a University licensed course). HE courses begin at undergraduate level of Bachelor Degree, Graduate Diploma, Masters Degree, Doctorate and PhD. TEQSA registers and evaluates the performance of higher education providers against the Higher Education Standards Framework
Can I study Dramatherapy in Australia?
Dramatherapy itself is not currently offered as a course of study in Australia. However, dramatherapy is integrated within the masters program offered at the Melbourne Institute for Experiential and Creative Arts Therapy (MIECAT). Psychodrama is somewhat related to dramatherapy. Please contact the Australian and Aotearoa New Zealand Psychodrama Association (AANZPA) for more information.
