Higher education reforms

On 1 May 2017 the Australian Government announced a range of proposed reforms to the higher education sector that will have an impact on all Australian universities and their students. The reforms are yet to be reviewed or passed in the Australian Parliament however, it is anticipated that most of the reforms will take effect from 2018. The proposed changes will affect current and prospective students in different ways.
