Student Funding Down in Australia

Funds for University Students Falls.  Gillard government figures show federal funding for each university student will decline over the next four years in real terms, despite previous claims it would increase even with the new efficiency dividend taken into account.

The government had argued average per-place funding would rise from $18,000 in 2013 to more than $18,100 in 2017 using today’s dollars and had even distributed a graph on social media to back its case.

But those figures include both federal funding and the student contribution.

A new government breakdown provided to Fairfax Media shows the average Commonwealth contribution will decline slightly from $10,600 this year to $10,500 in 2017 in today’s dollars….

 

Meanwhile the government seems to be doing everything possible to discourage fee paying international students?
