In 1998 the Academy was founded as the Australian Academy of Design by Professor Robert Treseder, and was inaugurated by the Australian Academy of the Arts. It was recognised as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO No.4656) in 1999 by the Office of Training and Tertiary Education (OTTE). In 2001 the Academy was registered on Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS No. 02201G). Between 2001 and 2006 the Academy offered bachelor and master degrees through an affiliation agreement with Charles Sturt University. In 2006, OTTE recognised the Academy as a Higher Education Provider able to offer bachelor degrees in its own right. The same year OTTE accredited the Bachelor of Design Arts, which was developed in association with the Australian Academy of the Arts.
