The Higher Education Authority (HEA) has been made aware that some of the aforementioned institutions are fraudulently issuing financial aid to unsuspecting members of the general public in order to recruit them. HEA strongly warns the general public not to enrol in any private institution that is not registered with the Authority.
Furthermore, Notice is hereby given that Melburn Institute of Applied Sciences is offering illegal degrees. This Notice has been issued pursuant to Statutory Instrument No. 25 of 2016 Part III Paragraph 10 (1) which states that the proprietor of an HEI shall not offer Learning Programmes (LPs) for which it is not accredited. HEA further strongly warns the general public not to enrol in any LP that has not been accredited by the Authority as their qualifications will not be recognised.
