Go8 logo newWith the glowing clamour around fee deregulation and changes to HELP (HECS), including from some of its own member V-Cs,  the Go8 has put out a short, even terse, media release expressing the Group’s “unanimous” support for the core elements of the Government’s proposed reforms to higher education.

The Group of Eight (Go8) unanimously supports the core elements of the Government’s proposed reforms to higher education policy and financing, said Go8 Chair, Professor Ian Young AO.

In particular we support:

  • expanding the demand-driven system to non-university providers, with adequate quality controls;
  • extending funding to sub-Bachelor Degree programs (e.g. Diploma and Associate Degrees); and,
  • deregulating tuition fees.

There are some aspects of the package which would benefit from further consultation.
