Governance and Quality


ACPE is an accredited Higher Education Provider (HEP). Our registration with the NSW Department of Education & Training, and our status as a HEP recognised by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations, ensure that ACPE graduates receive a degree that is equal to that of any public university and have access to FEE HELP.

As an approved HEP, ACPE is included in the Australian Qualifications Framework register of Recognised Education Institutions and Authorised Accreditation Authorities in Australia.
