Universities Australia wishes to express serious concerns regarding matters raised in the submissions from the Department of Defence and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade/Austrade.
Universities Australia welcomes this opportunity to review the ESOS Framework, explore areas of the Act and its legislative instruments that are no longer fit-for-purpose and explicate some of the issues facing students and providers in the Act’s implementation.
Our submission contains commentary on a number of specific issues relating to the provision of OSHC along with a summary of member feedback to the consultation questions.
Universities Australia is pleased to respond to the Department of Education, Skills and Employment’s ‘International Student Diversity at Australian Universities’ Discussion Paper (‘the Discussion Paper’). UA is the peak body for Australia’s 39 comprehensive universities and has long advocated for policy settings that
extend the transformative opportunity of an Australian university education to as many of our global neighbours as possible.
