Our accreditation process ensures a high standard of dietetics education is maintained. If you're developing a new dietetics program, you first need to apply for program qualification before you can apply for accreditation.

Process for program qualification

Program qualification is an opportunity for the university to establish a formal relationship with Dietitians Australia. It helps the university to evaluate if its dietetic education program is ready for accreditation.

'The Process for Qualification of New Dietetics Education Programs' details the process for a university to apply for assessment of a new dietetics education program.

This process is a precursor to the accreditation application process.
