National Day of Action: May 21

The government has made it clear they intend to massively deregulate Australia's university system, and move towards a United States-style system, which will inevitably involve fee increases.

The National Union of Students unequivocally rejects this agenda, that will see our system turn into a two-tiered, publicly underfunded and even more privatised system of higher education which leaves students worse off.

The government's agenda will fundamentally change the higher education system in this country - and NOT for the better. NUS has called a National Day of Action for May 21. The details for the central state demonstrations are below:

Wherever you are across Australia, come out on May 21 and stand against the privatisation and degradation of our universities, and against increases to fees. Stand up for public investment in Australia's future.

Tell Abbott and Pyne: hands off our education!

 

NUS releases SSAF Implementation Report

The National Union of Students has released its report into the implementation of the Student Services and Amenities Fee in 2013. Following a national study taken throughout 2013, the report shows that there are continuing issues around the student consultation processes and the amounts of SSAF being allocated to student organisations. However, it also highlights that student organisation funding has significantly improved since the fee was introduced.

The report can be found here.
