Low attainment levels are presenting universities with big challenges.
Having a set curriculum for academic courses is leading to poor learning outcomes in students, as students' needs aren't being catered to.
Should universities be allowed to deregulate fees for some courses?
If the flagship policy does not end up driving choice or quality, it is hard to see it gaining support.
Students pay between $6,256 and $10,440 for a university degree, depending on which course they choose to study.
After almost a decade of failed processes to reform the current funding system, the government must produce a revised system that improves the quality of outcomes for students in all courses.
Is it fair that students pay different amounts for university courses?
Students currently pay higher fees for courses that lead to jobs with typically higher wages. But not all students find, or want, a job in their area of study. Should all students then pay the same amount for their university degree?
