University Course Accreditation

About RACI Accreditation:

The Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI) collaborates with higher education institutions to elevate the quality and professionalism of their chemical science programs. This partnership is designed to guarantee that students emerge with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel as practicing chemists.

RACI Accreditation Standards:

The RACI accreditation process is based upon the threshold learning and teaching outcomes standards statements for chemistry. These standards have been meticulously crafted and are aligned with the Australian Learning & Teaching Council's published Learning & Teaching Academic Standards Statement for Science.

Why Accredit?

Advantage of accreditation

The RACI accreditation process is aligned with TESQA standards. The TESQA standards method provides an avenue of bench marking against other universities.

Degree programs are being reviewed by external experts who can give un-biased feedback. Feedback is provided on the structure of the program, how it meets the minimum threshold targets and where improvements can be made.

The accreditation cycle measures how the programs are improving over time. RACI accreditation guides chemistry educators on the learning outcomes to be attained. If a student is transferring from an institution that runs an RACI accredited course, both students and teaching staff can have confidence in the educational achievements of students. 

Universities can use accreditations to seek increased funding enabling them to deliver better teaching and learning outcomes.

Accreditation Process

Step 1: Nomination. Complete the Pre-Accreditation Nomination Form to start the process.

Step 2: Confirm Visit. Select suitable dates for the visit and we will confirm with our assessors.

Step 3: Pre-accreditation Surveys. Fill out tailored surveys about your degree programs.

Step 4: Site Visit. Plan a 2-3 day visit for meetings and assessments.

Step 5: Reporting. Receive feedback and a comprehensive report after the visit.

Step 6: Approval. The Board reviews and notifies you of accreditation status.
