The Cost of an Australian university degree compared to the rest of the world

http://www.nteu.org.au//var/files/thumbs/a780532dd116f8da145bac8c4c7961bc_e7e2a056b6c5e8722188bac5fbb3550f_w80_.jpgBy Paul Kniest. Some of the more questions frequently asked about the impacts of Christopher Pyne’s proposed changes to higher education include what impact they are likely to have on the cost of getting an Australian university degree and how this will compare to the rest of the world.
While we do not know exactly how much the cost of university degree in Australia will increases as rest of the government allowing universities and other providers offering Commonwealth supported places to charge whatever price they think the market will bear.  The NTEU’s analysis of factors determining likely prices rises and what impact this will have on students is the subject of a fact sheet called  How much will a uni degree cost?
The purpose of this note however, is compare how much it costs to undertake an undergraduate university degree in Australia compared to the rest of the world.  In order to ensure that we are comparing universities of similar standing we have used data on university fees included in QS World University Ranking Top 500 for 2013.

The end of public higher education in Australia

http://www.nteu.org.au//var/files/thumbs/a780532dd116f8da145bac8c4c7961bc_e7e2a056b6c5e8722188bac5fbb3550f_w80_.jpgBy Paul Kniest. Australia’s system of public higher education will come to end if Christopher Pyne and Tony Abbott are successful in getting their proposed changes to higher education regulation and funding through both houses of Parliament. No longer will entry into a public university be determined on the basis of a student’s academic ability but on their ability to pay.  In the new privatised higher education sector merit will no longer matter, money will.

Media Release: Pyne’s new Commonwealth Scholarships scheme is inequitable and unworkable

http://www.nteu.org.au//var/files/thumbs/a780532dd116f8da145bac8c4c7961bc_e7e2a056b6c5e8722188bac5fbb3550f_w80_.jpgBy Michael Evans. National Tertiary Education Union (NTEU) analysis (attached) shows that the proposed new Commonwealth Scholarship scheme for higher education students introduced as part of the 2014-15 Federal Budget is essentially unfair.
“The proposal disadvantages universities with the highest proportion of students from low SES backgrounds.  This needs to be taken into account by those currently reviewing the Scheme,” said National President Jeannie Rea. More...

The Abbott Government's planned de-regulation of uni degrees to hit women the hardest

http://www.nteu.org.au//var/files/thumbs/a780532dd116f8da145bac8c4c7961bc_e7e2a056b6c5e8722188bac5fbb3550f_w80_.jpgBy Terri Macdonald. New modelling by the National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling (NATSEM) at the University of Canberra, in conjunction with news website The Conversation report (HECS upon you: NATSEM models the real impact of higher uni fees) has found that women are likely to be hit hardest by deregulation, with female science graduates paying $45,000 more for their degrees, even if the actual cost of degrees did not substantially increase.

Bluestocking Week 2014: Crossing the Line

http://www.nteu.org.au//var/files/thumbs/a780532dd116f8da145bac8c4c7961bc_e7e2a056b6c5e8722188bac5fbb3550f_w80_.jpgBy Jeannie Rea. This year’s Bluestocking Week theme is ‘Crossing the Line’. How could it be otherwise? The line has been crossed already, not by us but by the Abbott Coalition Government and their advocates and supporters, who are seeking to wind back the clock as they actively attack pro-women and feminist policies and perspectives. We cannot stand on the sideline, but have to cross the line ourselves.
Last year, we focused on what the future may hold as it looked like the outcome of the federal election would be a neo-conservative Coalition Government. More...

Guidance for national networks for collaborative outreach

HEFCE logo1. In its announcement on changes to the National Scholarship Programme in November 2013, the Government announced funding of £25 million for the development of a national outreach network, to support collaborative approaches in delivering higher education (HE) outreach activity to all state-funded secondary schools and colleges (www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201314/cmhansrd/cm131128/wmstext/131128m0001.htm). This ring-fenced funding was subsequently confirmed in the Government’s grant letter to HEFCE of February 2014.
2. This document sets out the approach we have determined for allocating this funding, taking into account the Government’s expectations, and explains how institutions can access the funding. More...
