2. Who Are We?

2.1. Accreditation Status

The National Institute for Christian Education has a Third Party Arrangement with Alphacrucis University College (AC) for the delivery and accreditation of our Education courses. Alphacrucis education degrees are nationally and internationally recognised, and accredited by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA).

This Academic Handbook will cover course information and student services, resources, and facilities available from AC and/or the National Institute (the Third Party). It will include all necessary information for National Institute for Christian Education (NICE) students, such as: key dates, Moodle instructions (the electronic student management system for course access), study resources and assistance, student support, student rights and responsibilities, mobility, credit, assessment, and academic progress.

Please see AC’s Higher Education Third Party Arrangement Implementation and Administration Policy for more information on the implementation of this accreditation arrangement.


This Academic Handbook mainly notes the significant differences with AC’s Policies and Procedures. Therefore, referral to the AC portfolio is essential: (https://www.ac.edu.au/ppm/ and https://www.ac.edu.au/forms/).
