Accredited Dietetics Education Programs

The tabs below include a list of currently accredited programs that are accepting new enrolments; programs seeking accreditation; and programs that currently hold an accreditation status but are no longer accepting enrolments. To gain accreditation, a dietetics program must be a minimum of a Bachelor level degree. Please note there are a number of nutrition-related programs available in Australia that do not hold accreditation with DAA. Completion of such programs will not provide you with eligibility to join DAA or the Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) program.

Please consider the following points when viewing information about DAA accreditation of dietetics education programs.

  • Only graduates of accredited dietetics education programs are eligible to become DAA members with dietetic qualifications, and to join the Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) Program.
  • Provisional accreditation is generally awarded to either recently established dietetics programs who have not yet graduated students or to established programs as an alternative to full accreditation to ensure regular communication on how the program is meeting on-going accreditation requirements.
  • Full accreditation is generally awarded to dietetics programs with at least one or more cohorts of graduates.
  • Both provisional and full accreditation status may be subject to conditions.
  • All dietetics education programs are required to undergo an accreditation review on a regular basis.
  • Accreditation can be suspended and subsequently withdrawn if a program fails to demonstrate ongoing compliance with the accreditation requirements.

For further detail on the accreditation process and requirements please refer to the Accreditation Standards and Processes.
