Has Australia the imagination and will to create and maintain international pre-eminence in higher education? Key issues must be tackled across the next few years if an excellent higher education system is to be designed and built.
Since 2007 the University of Melbourne has hosted an influential series of high-profile public seminars on higher education policy. With higher education becoming ever more important to Australia’s prosperity it is essential to engage deeply in open discussions of how to plan and steer the tertiary system.
The 2014 Policy Seminars address contemporary debates, providing a forum for leaders from across Australia's education and government sectors to discuss issues of national significance.
