UA is the peak body representing Australia’s 39 comprehensive universities. Our member universities are spread across Australia in both regional and metropolitan areas. Together, they educate more than one million students each year, undertake significant research and engage globally to grow Australia and the world’s knowledge base while supporting our nation’s economic and social wellbeing.
UA recommends that the Government:
- establish a working group which will look at the following to ensure an appropriate program within current constraints:
» purpose of the program
» the nature of the value proposition to students
» funding arrangements including flow of funds, and
» implementation issues such as accreditation and legislative requirements.
