Important information

AusLIST can help you to identify courses which meet Australia’s registration, accreditation and quality assurance standards. However there are some important things to be aware of when you use AusLIST.

  • AusLIST may not have a complete list of institutions and courses available in your country. This is because listing on AusLIST is voluntary for institutions, and some may choose not to be listed. If you’re interested in an institution or course but can’t find it on AusLIST, check the Australian Qualifications Framework register;
  • AusLIST does not include Australian courses delivered offshore through online or distance education only. If you are interested in an online or distance education course, check its status with the institution and the AQF register. You can find out more on our distance education page;
  • Inclusion of a course on AusLIST means that the qualification it leads to is a genuine Australian qualification. However, this does not guarantee that the Australian qualification will be formally recognised in your country. Before enrolling, talk to the relevant authorities in your country or ask the contact person for the course which is shown on AusLIST; and
  • Before enrolling in a course, speak with the institution to ensure that course is right for you. Make sure to ask them for further details on how to enrol and on any prerequisites for the course.
