The organisation of the BCA program delivery is unique in the world. A student enrols for the award - Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma, or Masters - at their 'home' university, for example, the University of Adelaide. The BCA designates one university from within the Collaboration to deliver a particular course by distance to students around Australia, regardless of the university of enrolment. The BCA programs are supported by the collaborating universities, the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing, state departments of health, and the pharmaceutical industry.
