Good idea, just way too hard 

A survey comparing the postgrad experience here and overseas isn’t going to happen

Back in 2017 the government commissioned a bunch of work in response to the Australian Council of Learned Academy’s research training report (CMM April 14 2016).  Some is done, some is happening and some won’t. One that isn’t is the idea of the postgraduate course experience questionnaire comparing experience here with PGs overseas, notably the UK. The Department of Education and Training reports it had a look, got some advice and decided, given; “limited resources available, and the complexity of designing a sector-wide survey with sufficient diagnostic capability,” the survey “is not a priority at the present time.”
