The voice of Australia's universities

As the peak body for the sector, we advocate the vast social, economic and cultural value of higher education and research to Australia and the world.

On behalf of our 39 member universities, we provide expert policy advice, analysis and statistical evidence, and media commentary on higher education.

We also make submissions, develop policy across the sector, represent Australia’s universities on government and industry-appointed bodies and partner with university sectors in other countries to enable bilateral and global collaborations.
