About the Scheme

An important role for any profession is nurturing the special knowledge that marks out the profession and overseeing the quality of education for those entering the profession.

Environmental science and environmental management are two categories of undergraduate and post graduate study in Australia and New Zealand by which people enter the environment profession.

The scope of the EIANZ Qualification Accreditation Scheme covers qualifications in these areas. EIANZ recognises that qualifications in these disciplines are not the only entry pathway to the environment profession. They are, however, a useful beginning point for the Qualifications Accreditation Scheme.

The EIANZ has successfully piloted the scheme using the Bachelor of Environmental Science taught at Griffith University.

The Qualifications Accreditation Scheme has been established by the EIANZ Board through By-law 17 – Qualifications Accreditation Scheme.
