Program accreditation or membership offered by professional bodies signals to employers the quality and relevance of RMIT's programs and opens up career pathways and networks.
Professional bodies accredit or recognise programs as meeting professional and academic standards deemed to be essential for a new graduate entering into that profession. An accredited program will either enable the graduate to enter directly into a professional qualifications program or provide the graduate with exemptions or credit towards a post university professional qualification.
This type of accreditation is where a statutory body must approve a program of study in order for a graduate to practise in that profession.
Professional bodies or associations are representative organisations of professions that provide membership and other career development support to its members. Many professional bodies offer membership opportunities for students and new graduates with benefits such as career advice, networking within the profession and access to resources not available through the university. The aim of these benefits is to assist with your transition from university into the profession.
