Review of the Demand Driven Funding System A discussion with Andrew Norton

Wednesday 16 April, 1pm-2:30

VENUE: Theatre 230, 234 Queensberry St. Carlton Victoria, Australia OR attend via webinar for interstate and international audiences. Registration is essential.

Andrew Norton, co-author of the report, has kindly agreed to participate an interactive discussion on the report on Review of the Demand Driven Funding System, which was released on Sunday.

On 12 November 2013 Minister for Education, the Hon Christopher Pyne, appointed a review panel to look at and make recommendations in relation to the demand driven funding arrangements. The review panel comprised the Hon Dr David Kemp and Mr Andrew Norton.

The panel looked at the impacts of the demand driven system and whether it is increasing participation, improving access to students from poorer backgrounds and rural and regional areas, and meeting the skill needs of the economy. It explored whether there were any adverse impacts on quality and considered the long term sustainability of the system.

The panel’s report to the Minister was released on April 13 and can be found at

Richard James, Professor of Higher Education and member of the Higher Education Standards Panel will chair this session. We hope that you will be able to join us for what will be a stimulating and engaging discussion on the implications of the demand driven funding arrangements.
