Coding notes

  • A stand‑alone arrangement: The course, curriculum, teaching and the provision of learning support and infrastructure is the sole responsibility of the Australian institution.
  • Partnership arrangement: an arrangement in which the responsibility for the course curriculum, teaching, and learning support and infrastructure is shared with other entities, such as through partnerships with other institutions or entities, sub‑contracting of services, or franchising. The Australian provider has responsibility for academic oversight of the arrangement.
  • Where a course is delivered through more than one type of operation at a campus please report the principal arrangement.
  • An offshore course is a course that is offered fully or partially offshore. Courses that are offered from within Australia through distance education are not considered to be offshore courses.
  • Off‑shore does not mean "distance" or on‑line study.
