Bad time for new HE cost

Tertiary education providers are due to start funding their own regulation this year – an industry lobby wants a 12-month delay

The Independent Tertiary Education Council Australia argues the 135 independent HE and 3000 VET providers have enough to deal with in the COVID-19 crisis and that the feds introduction of regulation fees in July should not go ahead.

“Independent tertiary education providers are facing some real challenges; challenges that genuinely threaten the sustainability of many sector participants in the wake of the response to the COVID-19 outbreak,” ITECA’s Troy Williams says.
