In a statement, FASEA said no approvals have been made in relation to the applications it has received from higher education providers for the provision of graduate diplomas and bridging courses.

“This would allow accredited providers sufficient time to commence offering accredited graduate diplomas and bridging courses in the second half of the 2019 calendar year.”
