The Commonwealth Higher Education Support Act 2003 sets out three groups of Australian higher education providers: Universities, other self-accrediting higher education institutions, and state and territory accredited higher education institutions. Students at all three types of institutions are eligible for FEE-HELP, an income-contingent loan to cover charges and fees.

Other self-accrediting higher education institutions[edit]

Like universities, these institutions have the authority to accredit their own qualifications. However, they cannot use the title "University".[5]

State and territory accredited higher education institutions[edit]

Like universities, these institutions offer post graduate credentials at the Master's and/or Doctoral level. Unlike universities, however, each qualification offered by these institutions must first be approved by the relevant state or territory authority. The accreditation of these institutions may be verified on the National Register of Higher Education Providers.
